We have wrote an
article about the 6
reasons why it sucks to be a writer. As we have promised, here are 6 reasons why it rocks to be a writer!
1 - As a Writer,
You Are Powerful And Even More If You Are Published.
We wrote an
article long ago about the
power that a writer can have. As a writer, your pen is LITERALLY
(pardon the pun...) like a gun, a microphone, even like a camera. Not only
you can share your opinion to thousands if not more of people, but
you can also be detrimental to people.
For example, think about
Stephen King writing an article about YOU... would you like him to
speak highly of you or bad about you?
I have been
contacted some weeks ago by a person from
India. He told me that he wanted some advice to publish his book in order to
get the attention of his Prime minister. I was interested, of course,
in helping him and I am still waiting to read a sample of his book.
All this to say
that, as a writer, you are powerful and can be even more powerful. It
is at you to use that influence properly.
2 - If You Make a
Living Out of Your Writings, You Don't Have To Worry About a Boss.
This is the dream
of most aspiring writers or should I say aspiring authors.
3 - You Have
Found The Way to Speak Without Getting Interrupted.
Yes, no more
“Excuse-me I am not done yet” during an argumentation, as
you can shoot it all on paper.
4 - If You Are
Poor, You Can Blame The Precariousness Of Your Job.
Let's face it,
job of a writer is not always gratifying and there are lots of insecurities. It is not a stable job. I guess that being a
writer is a good excuse for being poor... just kidding, but most people understand if you say something like “hey I am a writer
and it's a hard job”.
5 - You Can Write
About Someone That You Don't Like With Impunity.
Writing gives a writer the opportunity to observe people and to weave
them into their writing. What a delightful way to get your own back
on a relative or person you don't like. Think about
someone that you don't like... Done? Now think about you writing your
book and build a character based on that person into an embarrassing
or unpleasant situation! Would they even dare to comment? I don't
think so. Why? Because that would be an admission of
6 - You Are
One of the advantages can be
regarded as a purchase of immortality. A writer will hope that the
written word will out live them. Your words and
your writings will out live you.
PS. Thanks to the author Christine
Curtis for giving the idea about this 5th
and 6th point.
