First, thank you for the mention! Second, I commend your tenacity!

The life of a writer is not pretty. I work a 50 hour a week day job (with a 1 hour each way commute) that runs me in the red. The days that I DO write feel good. The days I don’t I cry from exhaustion.

I have lived in the land of Carl Buddig. There are days I still do. My bills are huge and growing. But, I have a beautiful girl that is my life, at least for another 3 years is she my main focus. After that, you may find me in a van down by the river living on my writers pay.

Keep doing what you’re doing! The creative process is beautiful and I love that you’re part of it!
