Thought I'd make a thread some of you writers out there could moan in. All are welcome to join. What bugs you most about trying to get published. I'll start... Having to print and post off three chapters worth of pages. I tend to do this in bulk so I send about 10 copies every month, costing me ink, paper and the mail price. Too much money for a poor man's job. Spending a lot of my time trying to think up original stories only to realise the industry itself doesn't want originality, it wants the same old thing because originality is risky and not guaranteed to sell. Being asked to supply a C.V/resume. Why would they want that? Why would a resume tell them if my story is good or bad when they're just supposed to read the story. Waiting at least 3 months for any sort of reply even when it's email. If any other industry worked like that it would collapse within 3 months. It's 2012 and 90% of publishers and agents don't accept email submissions. Get with the times you morons. Traditional publishers belittling and bashing ebooks only to go publishing 50 shades the moment it gets popular.
