I can so relate. The only thing keeping me going right now are the emails I get from my readers. They make me feel my work matters. I even got a letter once saying I saved him from suicide.

It’s like suddenly, money doesn’t matter. Or heck, I am not supposed to be rich yet cause I need to put more work out there first.
