I went to hear a writer speak who began his career writing pulp fiction as a ghost. He learned a lot and eventually began writing under his own name. He showed us a check that he had gotten the day before for $200K as an advance on his next novel.

I do understand the dilemma of pouring heart and soul into something though.
