Writing for Money--or Not (Quote of the Day)
Can I get an amen? There's this weird notion amongst people that if you get published, suddenly you're rolling in the dough. Nope. First of all, that's a fallacy. Second of all, you don't write because you want to get paid. It wouldn't matter if you never made a cent. You write because you can't help it; because there are characters and words in you and they have to come out, one way or another. Ultimately, you don't write for the money; you write because you have to.
Today's Prompt: Write a story surrounding a character with these traits:
- 30 years or older.
- No stable profession.
- Addicted to get-rich-quick schemes.
- Has one talent: a knack for losing money.
