Pressure and Expectations: Making it Financially as an Author

Hello, dear readers! This week, I wanted to write about money, but in a very different sense than what I usually do, i.e., ranting about my lack of it and the difficulty of surviving as an adult in this consistently-increasing-living-expenses-without-an-increase-in-pay society (and that's without getting into the bullshit that's going on in the White House right now).… Continue reading Pressure and Expectations: Making it Financially as an Author
