Again, you, a tech geek, are presuming to speak for artists. Plenty of artists are pretty damned practical. I’ve always worked in the writing field and I’ve been extremely practical about money BECAUSE I knew I wasn’t going to have much of it to blow on stupidity. I wanted to be a professional writer and editor and I have been one. Being an artist doesn’t mean being an idiot. It means someone who creates art of one type or another. It is a very cruel and competitive business and if anything, it requires MORE Adulting than working as a damned techie.
