Caption: "There are better ways to make career."
Is writing the best career for you? It’s hard work, it pays nothing or close to nothing and it’s not that glamorous. What’s glamorous about sitting in front of your computer, getting the carpal tunnel syndrome and ruining your vision and your posture? The competition is fierce and the editors throw a “dear writer” rejection form in your face. Many people pay for the writing courses and books or even to vanity press publishers so they could get the coveted title of a writer. Why do it? Is this an equivalent of a drug high? You just have to do it even if it ruins your health, family life and finances?
Do you do it because birds do it and bees do it?
Why do I do it? Well. I thought you’d never ask. Why do I breath if I have do die anyway? That’s my answer. Yours?
