While you’re starting, the money may not be enough to pay the bills just yet. But with any luck, and once you’ve established yourself as a writer, opportunities would follow you and projects would abound. Eventually you’ll realize the money becomes mere icing on the cake because the true reward in writing is the joy of being paid while you’re not really working but merely expressing yourself. It will definitely make you feel you’re luckier than any other employed person in the world. Be a social person.
