The ordinary fan on it also stops. He is so disappointed that hides the manuscript and forgets about it.
Only five hundred people earning to themselves a living by purely literary work - from the population more than two hundred million. Less than one on four hundred thousand.
Starting believing difficult in the rule "not copyings". The myth took roots that the manuscript has to be processed at least once to become suitable for publication.
This the last excludes another ninety percent from five open or closed gates. We began with fifty million, at us only five hundred survived now.
It makes only five thousand which survived which actually send the manuscript to the market - to the editor, - and it comes back with the letter on refusal.
Then it is necessary to reprint the manuscript - for accuracy. Reprinting - not copying. Copying assumes new approach, fundamental change of a form.
Whether you will begin to overroast fried eggs? Whether will sort just constructed wall? Whether will break a new chair? Ridiculously! This silly practice of processing is based on the ridiculous assumption that you it is cleverer today, than yesterday. But it not so. An effective way of writing, as well as any other work, - it is correct to do at once!
These numbers are generally correct. A few years ago the organization to which I belong, the American association of writers, made research to reveal all professional writers. We found only four hundred people who declared that they provide themselves and the families with exclusively literary work. All others had other main sources of the income.
Let's enter the amendment on increase of the population and on all passed at research - it is a little of them, names of true professionals are visible everywhere on show-windows: they cannot hide. So we will accept as at most - five hundred people.
