You’re Not Meant To Do What You Love. You’re Meant To Do What You’re Good At.
Brianna Wiest

Had it been written by a dishwasher, happily engaging in making the world a better and cleaner place, this piece might come off a bit better. Instead, we have a self-proclaimed writer doing her writing and writing about doing her writing… whilst writing about how the wannabe writers of the world should stop talking about their novels and start embracing the joy of their shitty day jobs.

While I agree that it’s important to use our skills and do what we need to do, there’s little harm in daydreaming about creative work or in attempting to work in glamour fields. (And for those of us who’ve done it, yes, it seems hilllllarious that writing and publishing are considered sought-after, “glamour” fields.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
