The Reality of a Writer’s Life

This video is so funny in its sober reflection of a writer’s life. The reality, while hard to face, is that if you write for a living, unless your name is Stephen King, John Grisham, or some other millionaire author, chances are real good you’re not living in the lap of luxury. Consider this video an official reality pill with a dose of humor for good measure.

  1. That is hilarious, Sharon! What a great reminder that being published is not the end of a writer’s struggles.

    (Plus it made me giggle!)

  2. So funny and so true. Marketing can stink. Coming up with fresh ideas is hard. A book on the shelf does not equal money in our pockets.

  3. Hi Sharon –

    I’ve seen this one before, but it highlights the writerly facts of life. Of course, it doesn’t take into account God’s plans. 🙂


  4. Angie, Susan, and Melinda, can you imagine doing a book signing next to Mary Higgens-Clark? That poor man didn’t have a chance. 🙂

  5. I’ve had close to 20 book signings and had one that wasn’t too different from this video.

    Sigh. Talk about every second stretching into a year!!!!!


  6. I don’t bookmark sites but i will bookmark this!

  7. Totally believable! Life writing is something of a conundrummer! Thanks for bring this video to everyone’s attention-and keep on writing!

  8. Paper Tiger Press, glad you enjoyed the video. Thank you so much for stopping by!
