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

So true. I’m married to a writer, and we’ve been publishing novels since 1998, together and separately, but we never could have kept writing and publishing and paying a mortgage if he hadn’t also started a family business while he was in his 20’s, and if he didn’t work 7 days a week at one or usually both of those things, and if we didn’t work even on vacations. Writing is a vocation, as in a calling, as in the sort of thing nuns and priests do. Teaching writing is a job, however, which is why most writers do that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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