And still we write!
As a writer, I think I cleared a little over $5 last month on royalties for my e-novel. As a teacher, I make less than most people in the professional world with degrees. I wanted to give all of us who make very little money yet continue in the writing or teaching game a little encouragement.
I’ve been to a couple of places outside the U.S. that would be considered poverty areas, and have seen people living with very little. I saw a man in China who was deranged, homeless, wearing nothing but the dirt he rolled around in, covering himself with a matted blanket, eating from the contents of a trash can. I’ve seen four children in Mexico living in a wooden shack with a blue plastic tarp for a roof, kicking a rock around outside the front of their dwelling as if it were a soccer ball.
