The Shortform

This Platform Has Broken Me

Currently Struggling to Write

I’m going to be very honest, part of the reason I’m writing here is because of the money, it’s a big motivation.

Don't get me wrong, I love writing, but even passion cannot pay the bills. I don't have a day job that earns me money while I write here for fun, I'm a student and also a freelance writer (business has been really slow) and the money would go a long way.

I know it's very tough to earn here but I was ready to share the little knowledge I have, while watching my earnings grow from pennies, no matter how long!

Unfortunately, I received a letter yesterday that my country doesn’t support it (didn't read the terms, just clicked accept), Ouch! Now the only thing supporting my stay here is Passion.

Hope it will be enough
