I chose today’s quote because I see so many “writers” who are willing to write for peanuts. Thus, it makes it much harder sometimes to find decent paying writing gigs, because many employers feel that if X will write their project for only .01 a word, then Y and Z should take those wages too. Now, I realize that some people feel they need to, or have to take those wages, and if that’s what you want, fine. Me, I would rather not write than expend the time and energy to write for .01 a word.
Write out of love, write out of instinct, write out of reason….but always for money.
