Ah! The Writer’s Life, Right?

Writing to be Read

Writing Process 1

The life of a writer. It’s what we all aspire to, right? But what do you envision when you think of yourself living the writer’s life? What exactly is it that makes it so appealing to us? And how close is it to the reality of being a working writer?
