No, Joe, other people are NOT more succesful than I am :)
That's actually very funny, because I've been at this game for a long, long time and have feathered my nest very nicely.
I'm just tired of the whining from people like you. I've had to reinvent myself, change gears, turn in a different direction many times in my life. I've had multiple writing platforms disappear under my feet. In my main business (which my writing fed) I have had to learn new technologies, find new customers, and buy new tools time and time again because we live in a fast changing world.
Medium is changing -- for the better, I hope and I hope that it will survive and thrive. But you and the other pampered ones don't like change. You want the easy money to keep pouring in for your repetitive stories.
Catch a clue from someone much wiser than you: things change and you either adapt or you lose.
