10 for 10 (The Best and Worst of Being a Writer)

15 Aug

Why you should NOT be a writer:

1. Writers don’t get vacations. Your always on the clock

2. The pay sucks! LOL

3. Everything you ever do will be  judged and speculated on by others.

4. People who aren’t writers will think you are crazy. Most will tell you so bluntly.

5. You are totally dependent upon your self for motivation.

6. Only one in one-hundred manuscripts will be published. Feeling lucky?

7. The work is hard.

8. Even when you aren’t writing your writing. There are no “five-minute breaks”

9.You are your only resource. Everything you write comes from you (your brain) if it runs dry, to bad so sad.

10. There are a lot of  doubters. People will tell you that you are not good enough, and that you never will be. You may start to believe them.

Why you SHOULD be a writer:

1. You arer free from wake up schedules. No 9-5 for you!

2. You can work in your PJ’s!

3. The writers you meet, are some of the most fantastic human beings on earth!

4. You get freedom to create. You have complete control over what you do and how you do it.  Everything you write is all yours, all the time.

5. The work is rewarding. It’s tough to make it through 100,00 words, but when you do there is nothing better!

6. The few who do support you are the best. They’re always there to pat you on the back (or kick you in the butt ;D) and tell you to continue.

7. You have the ability to influence millions with the words you write. Your work can touch others in ways that you can’t possibly imagine.

8. Your work is your passion.Who doesn’t want to do what they love?

9. You can make yourself laugh at the stupid things you’ve written.

10. You learn more about yourself than you could ever imagine.

Anyone have anything else to add?

UPDATE: My posting schedule begins today! Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Remember to check in on those days to see what is new!

    You forgot to mention the Relative Factor. For example, in my case: “What do you want to go for at college?”

    Me: “Journalism.”

    Them: “And what career?”

    Me: “Journalism. I want to be a embedded journalist and write novels/blogs on the side.”

    Them: “Shouldn’t you go for a real job?”

    Me: ANGER!

    ha I’ve gotten that before. People look at you funny when you say you want to be a novelist. I think my parents are hoping it is just a phase XD (They wish!)
