Hi there! So I really want a career in publishing but everyone keeps telling me it's a waste of time since I'll make no money and it's a dying industry.. I try to be optimistic about it since it's what I want to do but it still hurts when people knock on it. Any advice?
I don’t understand the argument that it’s a dying industry. Do they mean print books? Because they’re actually on a rebound after the ebook boom. As are independent bookstores.
As for storytelling itself, humans have been doing that since the dawn of sentience. So it’s not going away any time soon.
