Well, what should I say to kick this blog off? Hello, my name’s Valerie Thomas and I’ve been addicted to writing for two years. It’s a terrible habit, truly. Because they tell me I can make money at it.
So far? I’ve made, oh–eighty dollars. For two complete novels and five guide books. If I estimate the time it took to complete them, I think my wage works out to about thirty cents an hour. Yup, there are subsistence-level farmers who make more than me. On the other hand, I’ll admit that my work so far (thankfully, all of it ghostwritten) hasn’t been worth much more than I was paid for it.
Well, all of my (zero) followers, that’s me. A technically professional writer, working on yet another novel. This one I plan to publish under my own name.
