Cintia,

Not sure how to respond here. I get what you're saying about "so much competition," and why that might be discouraging. But most of the fiction writers I know who do succeed will tell you...they simply HAD to write. And they were this way years before they were ever published. The desire to write stories was so strong they did it whether or not the stories ever got published. I'd say, if you're really meant to do this, stop thinking about "the industry" and rediscover the desire to simply write for the love of writing. There's always room "in the industry" for one more great story, well written well and well told. (less)
