I’m tired of hearing people say “Writing is my passion.”
Why does nobody ever say “Accounting/Chemistry/Physics/Law/Greek/Programming is my passion?”
There seems to be something noble about aspiring to make a living through the arts.
But in two, five, even ten years, when you’re working thankless hours for a pittance, you might be rethinking that plan.
And maybe by that stage, you won’t be so passionate about putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, anymore.
