Let me start off with a little anecdote that might seem off-topic. I spent some time working for a relatively reputable and honest content farm. Some of the clients were professional writers who would just paste their name on top of my article after perhaps editing it a bit to make it conform with their own voice.
In nearly every case, my "research" consisted of five minutes of skimming a few websites and then b. As I did this work, I started to notice that various blogs, online magazine articles, and so on had the same feel as my content farm articles, and had almost certainly been content farmed by name-brand writers of nonfiction.
Around the same time, a versatile published writer buddy of mine told me that, ever since it became common practice a few decades ago for name-brand novelists to publish a new book every year in order to sustain interest in the brand and maximize profit for the publisher, both writers and publishers have been employing ghostwriters in case the novelist suffers writer's block and can't meet deadline, or simply in case he wants a vacation.
I wish I could say I stopped doing content work for ethical reasons, but the reality is far different. So I asked a buddy who has more than 10 years' experience selling his advertorial writing directly to clients on a freelance basis, how much he would charge for one of my articles.
He read a few and said: Even then, it's not so much that I refused to be exploited, as that I lost heart and couldn't summon even the minimal amount of enthusiasm to keep writing. Every profession is competitive, and nearly every profession is cutthroat, but the creative professions--music, film, television, theater, and, yes, writing--are psychopathically, bite-off-the-0ther-guy's-sweetmeats competitive.
This is not surprising, as my educated guess is that there are tens of millions of publishable but still unpublished English-language writers, and the industry has the resources to publish very few of them each year. Self-interested industry insiders, who have something to gain from maintaining an insane buyer's market for fiction by sustaining the hopes of as many unpublished hopefuls as possible, and who always carefully conceal that self-interest in their public statements, have made ridiculous utterances such as: Getting published has very little to do with hard work and improving your craft, and everything to do with the blind luck of having your manuscript seen by the right person at the right time.
So what is better, grinding away at your craft for 20 years before you maybe get published for the first time, or buying a lottery ticket every week for the same 20 years?
Your odds in the two cases are identical. No doubt some self-interested industry insider will respond to this with what amounts to damage control. I'm going to ignore them, and respond only to those who are obviously replying in good fairth.
