Writing for a Living

Check out the post above.

Robin LaFevers is the author of Grave Mercy (AWESOME! Go buy it) and wrote this piece for the WU blog.  In the article she divulges her income, since 2002, as a writer.  It was so interesting.  These are all things you know because we have all read about the economic process of traditional publishing but it was eye-opening (educational) to see the real numbers of a successful author.  PEOPLE, DO NOT QUIT YOUR DAY JOB!

It looks like it will be a very long time before I can even fund my addiction to Beachbody.com products with my writing, much less pay any bills.  Sad.

The lesson.  Write because you love it.

Happy Writing:-)
