Welcome to The Struggling Writer

Welcome to The Struggling Writer. As the name and tagline suggests, this is a site about a struggling writer, namely me, Andrew ‘Gillan’ Drew. Almost forty, writing fiction all my life and increasingly fed up at getting nowhere, I figured that here would be a great place to share some of my work, discuss some ideas, and go off on frustrated rants about anything to do with writing, publishing and the wider world around me.

Come for the blog, stay for some stories, and hopefully be moved, entertained and provoked in equal measure. Click on the menu above to access my fiction and feel free to comment.

I look forward to engaging with my fellow writers.

  1. 🙂 Do not give up on writing, Andrew.

    Have you considered the option of hiring a publicist?

    If no one is aware of the existence of your wonderfully written science-fiction, no one is going to read it.

    And, I truly wish you all the best and I do hope that your work gets published soon.


    1. Thank you, Renard. I’d never thought of going down the publicist route. Mainly I approach agents, and while receiving much encouragement from them, I have never quite managed to get on anybody’s books.

      Cheers for the interest and the kind words.
