hello all, So here I am after at least two years since my last posting on this board. Been busy with life, and also made time to finish two novels (each over 100 000 words). Currently working on a third one. My problem is I love to write, but I'm not sure what to do with my works. Not sure if I want to be an author even though I love to write. Not sure if I should seek an agent's service and try to make something out of my works, not sure if I should try self-publishing either. I aspire to work for the federal government which may involve working outside the United States. We all know to be a successful author, one must have time and resources. Combining being an author with working (especially General Schedule) usually does not gel well. Just confused and not sure what to do. Anyone else sitting on their work(s)and not sure what to do with it?
