Just a short post today, inspired by the WWE’s John Cena. Well, this post actually has to do with another author who I (nearly) collaborated with a couple of years back. As in: we agreed to collaborate and then I never heard from the guy again. Early this morning, one of his readers tweeted out to him and I happened to see it. This guy’s bleeding money (aren’t all writers?) and is threatening to quit unless his readers do a better job of backing him through purchasing his work.
OK, so I don’t even know where to go from here. Honestly. I’m certainly not going to reach out to him at this point, but I’m also a decent guy. I don’t want to see anyone fail. We’ve certainly all been frustrated at some point or another.
At the end of the day, I honestly wish the guy well. I’m going to do my own thing and I suppose fate will handle the rest of it. As for the “collaboration” in question, I picked it up and finished it on my own. It’s under review right now and will publish in just a few weeks. I couldn’t be more excited (or proud)! In closing, I guess we all deal adversity in our own way. Me? I keep my head down and work as hard as I possibly can, while never forgetting where I came from or who I need to thank for that.
Thank you, Constant Reader.
