This is so true. I cringe every time one of these questions are asked. Why does everyone want to know about the money?

I think because they think all writers get Steven King sized advances. They don't realize that the majority of writers, unless they have a spouse with a really well-paying job or a trust fund ourselves, have to work other jobs as well. When people say, I want to be a writer, they often think of the money, the fame, the TV show stuff-that most often doesn't happen! You don't become a writer because you want money and fame, but because you HAVE to be a writer.
