I make a living by writing — I’m a full time Copywriter and also do a bit of freelance work on the side. I’ve always wanted to make a living by writing and I’m able to do it.
My first novel has been written and is currently being edited. To be a novelist is the dream, but even if I publish it and don’t earn a penny, I’m still fundamentally doing what I love (writing) to live, and earn a decent wage doing so! There are so many writing jobs which are excellent careers!
