Trying to Make a Living at What You Love Is Hard

You guessed it. I’m one of those “starving artists” that people talk about sometimes. I’m embarrassed to admit just how much I’ve invested in my writing career, and how little payoff I’ve seen for it, so far. Fact is, I’m completely broke. I live with my parents. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a complete mooch. I’m a substitute teacher during the school year. I’ve applied to a BUNCH of retail places, but haven’t had a single callback so far. Why did I go to college and get an AS and a BS if nobody was going to hire me after? That’s frustrating. Thousands and thousands of dollars invested in education, and I don’t feel like it gave me a leg up at all. I feel the same way about all the money I’ve poured into my writing career, and with no payoff in sight.

So, now I’m offering up the only skills I have to strangers in the hope that I can somehow dig myself out of this hole of education and dreams. What are those skills? Writing and editing, of course.

Right now, I have an editing service and a campaign for 100% customized romance novels. I will be offering more diverse services later on. My pen is ready, and my hat’s at my feet. Help a writer out?
