You really nailed how so many of us feel about our work in this industry! The way most people view writers is hilarious when it isn’t vastly irritating — if all I wanted to do was brood and drink, I’d go back to college. Instead I get to write all day and, y’know, actually ENJOY my income…even when it comes from writing 2k words about the merits of various types of cookware.
I love that writers of all types have found each other using the internet so we can gossip and laugh and learn together. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences with us all!
