Whether It’s A Hobby Or For Money When You Write You Still Need To Do The Work

Words Just Won’t Magically Appear On The Page

Then there’s a completely different group who’ve taken up writing as a hobby. They don’t care about the money, and they certainly don’t care about all this starving artist mumbo jumbo.

These folks enjoy turning a phrase or two because it soothes them and helps them find inner peace after enduring a nine to five grind. It’s something they do when they have a few minutes to spare. A few stolen moments of solace from the JOB, the chores, and just life in general.

And there’s us.

The freelancers, the novelists, the bloggers, the journalists, and magazine writers.

In essence, our one single mantra is: we do the work, somebody forks over the dough.

Pretty simple, eh? Well, the premise is, but doing the work on a consistent and timely basis? Ah, not so much.
