  1. You still have to do the housework. Unless you sell millions of book and can hire someone to do it.
  2. You become addicted to your computer, worse than getting hooked on opioids.
  3. You can’t sleep comfortably every night because your characters don’t sleep. They just keep making chatter while waiting for the next scene.
  4. You never can predict your paycheck. It’s a given, you cannot predict how much it will be whether you are self-published or not.
  5. Number 6 is actually not correct. Amazon and Smashwords keep a running number of sales and royalties. It is my understanding that with traditional publishers, you will not know until the check actually appears.
  6. You become obsessed with marketing giving it more time than your writing.
  7. You cannot live in your pajamas all day. You still have to go out for groceries.
  8. You cannot go without a shower. You will still reek after a few days, So will the garbage pail.

Sarina doesn’t really care about any of this stuff. She just keep writing because I love it.

AND she would love you to add to my list or write a more positive one?

By the way, do you like my picture. Cool, right!
