You Can’t Make A Living As A Writer Because Being a Writer Isn’t a Job
Ester Bloom

Thanks for writing! Appreciate the post. Although you do clarify, over the course of the article, actually you CAN make a living as a writer. I’ve been doing it for years. Yes, most of my writing is all menial “stringing words together” for the Internet, and no, it doesn’t pay very well a lot of the time. The fact that many of these authors consider $40k low speaks volumes to people’s warped perspective. My partner and i, and most people I know, are lucky to make $25k between the two of them. $40k’s kind of a lot of money! You can do a lot with that! And for those that have the creative drive, grind your ass off and keep improving and you can make it!
