I was reminded of that autobiographical story this morning after reading an article in The Guardian about how little writers get paid. And we do, most of us. I'm going to save my tirade on the subject since it would be set off by the comments section and not the article. Anyway, read and enjoy. If you are thinking of becoming a writer, consider. If you are driven to write then nothing is going to stop you so read and prepare.
