Seven things you should know if you want to be a writer:

1. Even if you tell people that you aren’t making enough money to be required to file taxes, they won’t believe you.

2. 98% of the people who read your books and offer you encouraging words and moral support will not be related to you.

3. A lot of people think that you are writing just to get attention.

4. The rest of the people think that you are promoting your books just to get attention.

5. The majority of the people from statement 3 and 4 believe that if you cannot sell your book without promoting it, then you must not be a very good writer.

6. The rest of the people who don’t think you are writing just to get attention, think that you are doing it just for the money.  (See statement 1)

7. If you love it, keep writing anyway.
