The Perks of Being a Writer

Man Writing

Being a writer, or trying to be one, can be frustrating at times.

Usually it’s because of the writing itself – either it’s not good enough or simply not the way you’d like it to be.

At other times it’s the editors or the publishers that give you trouble.

Sometimes it’s the low pay.

From time to time it’s writer’s block. (A fancy term for laziness, if you ask me.)

On some bad days it’s all of them combined, and that’s when you feel like burning your books and papers and breaking your pencil and becoming a business person.
