Every writer who does his research knows this; Amazon publishes every six minutes a new book. This makes it very difficult for everyone to draw the attention of the potential reader.
Due to the current lock-down caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, I had some time on my hands to go snooping around on some Facebook pages to find out what’s behind this sudden outburst of productivity in the publishing world.
Under this paragraph you find a synopsis of the most recurring questions that were posted on a Facebook page about creative writing. The result was putting me through a minor depression.
I want to write a creative story but have no ideas. How do I get inspiration?
Pls writers. Does writing has anything to do with knowing English language very well?
Can one be a good writer without reading much???
If one is writing a novel what should be main essentials?
How many pages (minimum) does a novel need to have?
Pls guys: How do I make money with writing?
What is easiest to write: a zombie apocalypse or an alien invasion?
I have no doubt that some people will find this incredibly funny, but when you’re a writer and you realize that your work is just spewed out by Amazon between the works of those masterminds, you sink away in quiet desperation.
PS. Please take into account that I’ve reproduced the questions like they were posted on Facebook before you start pummeling me about their syntax.
