I write because I'm hoping it will free me from my dependence on being an employee. I hate hate hate hate hate hate having to do a job to make ends meet. "Job" should be the 4-letter word, not 'work'. I'm ok with work, really, just - did I mention I hate having to do a job?

Oh - If you want to tell me 'If it's money you want, there are better ways of making it than writing' make sure you tell me at least one of those ways and how much I can make from it. It would need to be legal.
