It would be interesting to hear how famous writers truly feels about their fame. I know many famous musicians have struggled with fame and fortune. No privacy, stalkers, people trying to use you, money hassles and rips-off, etc.
And how many bands start off as friends and then end up hating each other once they find success. The beginning (the chase) really was the best part.
I think it is almost better to be semi-famous. Make a decent living at it but don’t have all the issues with fame.
Not like I’d know. LOL!
