Writing Is My Job

I was having breakfast with my friend the other day and we were moaning about our lack of writing. I mentioned that we really do have to treat our writing as if it was a job. Coincidently I came across this article Writing Is My Job by Jen Jones.

Validation for my friend is in this quote:

For those of you who have actually considered whether you have the talent to keep writing as your job, this Stephen King quote is for you – “If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn’t bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.”  True, most of us will never be as famous as Mr. King, but we can follow his lead and never give up on writing.
