So I’ve been struggling with the idea of getting a job since my writing doesn’t pay the bills yet. I’m a perpetual seeker of unemployment, for it’s way more exciting for me to be a full-time writer. But being a writer without a job can be challenging, especially early on in one’s career. Here’s a list I created of the pros and cons of being a full-time writer.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Please, like it, reblog it, and share it! Do you have a job or are you a full-time writer?

This is so true. It would be “so much fun” to write full-time and “so much work” too!!!!
Reblogged this on quirkywritingcorner and commented:
Oh, I love this!
I was reading these out to my husband and he started laughing at the last one. Then we began to talk about something else and he just randomly says to me, “Are you going to write a book or are you just going to stay on social media reading about the pros and cons of writing a book?” *dies*
(for the record, no I am not writing a book. I write stories… or try to. >.>;; )
Hahahaha, I like. That’s why I don’t ever call myself a writer. Saves the pain
Writing reminds of the famous letter sent to the Bullwalker people:
“Dear Sirs, the BW arrived in excellent condition and in good time six months ago and I’ve used it religiously every day. Please now send the muscles …”
OMG this is sooo true! Funny
Spirituality fulfilled. Amen.
I do have a day job, but I want to be a full time writer some day.
Haha brilliant stuff!
Made me laugh… thanks!! HA HA!
The last con on your list is so accurate!
Some points I can actually relate to for a change!
If only some editors wld reply for a change… miss th days when rejections came in on a regular basis…
Will I spend th rest of my days forever having to add Links to let people know that I still exist?!
I love it. And sadly spent my day doing exactly the last con on your list. sigh…
All your points are spot on…
I have a job, but currently seem to spend more of my spare time stitching than writing…Need to work on that…
Very good post, very true
