There’s one thing that really annoys me as an Indy author, not being able to justify the time I spend writing. Like most writers, I don’t make anywhere near enough money from writing to call it a ‘job’, so my income comes from an ordinary 9-to-5 career. Even though I love writing, outside of my ‘normal’ job I have to put my family first. I’d much prefer my kids to be able to say We’ve got a great mum rather than There’s an author living in our house!!!
Of course, I’d love to be able to say My writing pays for xyx… or once this book goes to print we can afford abc… but I can’t because it doesn’t/we can’t. I just wish I could justify the time I (want to) spend writing because I’ve got two current WIPs and I love writing.
Admittedly, the submission process has knocked me…
