Today, Aspirignwriter22 aspires to bring you the DISADVANTAGES of being a writer, sadly.

Yes, writing is a great hobby and passion for many. Please do not allow me to discourage you from doing what you love to do. That is not my intention nor is it the point of this article.

Advantages Of Being A Writer

  1. Writers don’t get holidays. That’s right. They write every day. Well, the ones who want it badly enough, do.
  2. They don’t have many friends. Hey it is true, writers spend most of their time at home…not outside partying.
  3. Completing a writing project takes time. Try writing a novel in 5 minutes or even 5 days. You can’t do it.Time On The Clock
  4. You don’t get paid enough for it. If you are on of those writers that can make a living out of it, congratulations. As for the rest of us…keep your day job and keep on writing.
  5. Ahem, the writing industry is a battlefield and you are a lone soldier on it. The competition is out of this world. In most cases, every writer out there wants the same thing you want: publication, royalties, status, etc.
  6. The oh-so-common-mostly-bitter-rejection-slip. Enough said.

    1. That’s great! Although I assume you have deadlines to meet from time to time, which may put more pressure on you to quicken your pace? Whatever the case, the pros associated with being a writer usually outweigh the cons.
