How Seriously Do You Take The Business of Writing?
As writers we say it all the time, either shouting it aloud or whispering it in the back corners of our minds: “Boy oh boy, I wish I could make enough money from writing that I didn’t need a real job.”
I mean, really, who of us wouldn’t love to sit at home day after day, in our coziest clothes, doing nothing but indulging our imagination.
Here’s the thing, though: writing is a real job.
Success doesn’t happen by accident, and hard work doesn’t do itself. Anything that will support you financially is going to take effort and organization.
I’m not preaching from the pulpit here. When it comes to disorganization and laziness, I’m offender Numero Uno.
