When I attend writers gatherings of various sorts, I often hear other writers questioning whether there is enough space in the market for all of us. Naturally they are worried that saturation point will be reached and there simply isn’t enough space for any more writers.
The best answer I can give is one given to me by another writing friend, he put it quite eloquently. He said, “there is room for everyone for we sit at the world’s largest banquet and dine from the same table.”
This is good reassuring advice from a wise and knowledgeable man. No matter how insecure us writers can get, and let’s face it we can bring ourselves down without anyone else’s help, we can be safe in the knowledge that there is plenty of space for us all at the great banqueting table.
Our biggest dangers are self-doubt and procrastination. This I know to be true for I get pangs of both and judging by the posts on Facebook from fellow writers I know that I am not alone.
So my fellow writers do not fear. Just work at your writing to make it the best it can possibly be and trust that down the line there is a market and outlet for your work.
The banquet runs long into the night and there is plenty to go around.
