Writing: job vs lifestyle

There is an excellent article here from Pam Mandel at Nerd’s Eye View. It should be required reading for anyone with aspirations to be any kind of writer, not just the travel writers she’s talking about. It should also flash up as an automatic pop-up in front of anyone clicking on those parasitic ads for online courses or short training weekends offering to show you how you can ‘spend your life travelling the world – and get paid for it!’ The comments below it are as worth reading as the article, btw.
