Over the past few months I have had to come to some harsh realities. I have not only updated my retirement plan, but have had some serious issues of whether I think it is possible to earn a living by writing. I know others do it, but what makes me so special? Sure, I can write a blog post and I can do the grunt work to make a website semi-successful, but do I have what it takes to make it big? Processing these sorts of questions has led me to wonder why people don’t make it. But perhaps most importantly, why people don’t give their dreams a fighting change.
