On our video show, we try to ask authors interesting questions to get inside their brains a little bit.
Recently I thought of this one but I’d like to share it with you and get your thoughts.
Would you rather make $100,000 a year as an author/writer but you hate your job, you hate what you’re writing about, you hate the long hours, you hate your boss, you hate going to work every day.
Would you rather earn$30,000 a year as a writer, work more hours then you would have any other job, obviously make a lot less money, spend more time with your family but call the shots on every single decision and for the most part be jumping out of bed excited to go to work every day and love what you do?
It’s a false choice because sometimes you just have to go for the money. Life dictates things. But reality might live somewhere in between.
Remember though if you can do it for a while and love it at 30 grand, you might be able to turn that into 100,000 and more. But you probably can’t if you go the other route. And that hate has an effect.
What are your thoughts?
