Wages of Writing

I’ve mused in the past about being a professional writer; the idea seems very attractive but I’ve no illusions it would be anything but hard work producing product and then peddling it. So it’s interesting to see the finances of one writer from the inside. It seems that if you produce something of decent quality and keep at it for a long time, you can make a decent living even if you’re not Michael Chricton or J.K. Rowling.

Me, I don’t think I can afford to quit my day job.
