Writer friends.

Writer friends are not like social friends.
The friend I’m referring to is not one I’ve ever actually met. I know her through the internet.

Money

Money is the most infuriatingly sensitive topic when it comes to writers.

“I’m not made of money!

If I were to buy every book that was released every day of the year — I’d lose my home.”

Listen,
I’m not telling you to buy every book that’s ever been written since the dawn of time.

Self Published Authors

Most self published books aren’t great, and that’s pretty much because of the extremely low barrier to entry.
