My weekly wage as a writer
That is correct, all I make writing is $1 a week in a good month - and there aren't many of those.
It amazes me that people think I am a successful writer, not only for thinking I can write but when I consider how little I get and what people expect from me. I keep getting asked about my standard of work, being honest, these days I don't care what I write for many reasons.
Why should I care?
I don't make enough to care about ruining my poor reputation as a writer.
I doubt anybody will read what I write, why should I care?
