56 Notes From Writers On The Morbid Reality Of 'Making A Living' As A Writer

"Plenty of authors who appear to be successful in public are, in private, struggling to get by." This is the overwhelming theme of <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Scratch-Writers-Money-Making-Living-ebook/dp/B01CO347DG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&;qid=1486065112&;sr=8-1&;keywords=scratch">Scratch: Writers, Money, and the Art of Making a Living</a>, a collection of essays by writer's talking about about their work (and then what actually pays the bills). I've quoted some of the notable parts here, but the whole book is worth a read for anyone who wants to write professionally.
