‎”You Don’t Have a Real Job” — Setting the Record Straight.

Sandy Coelho is a friend and a very good writer. Being a writer, she has much in common with many of my followers and readers who, like myself, are also writers. Sandy found herself in a touchy, difficult situation but she is not the type of person to let misconceptions lie.

Her current blog post gives powerful arguments for why writers do in fact have a Real Job. Writers, I  hope you enjoy Sandy’s arguments.

For non-writers, I hope you’ll consider the points Sandy makes. Have you ever heard the parent of an artist or writer ask their son or daughter, “Why don’t you get a real job?” or “Why don’t you study to be a doctor or lawyer?” Here’s a counter to that logic.
