The busy bee that I am, I don’t read as many articles or blog posts as I’d like, but once in a while an article comes along and makes me stop and think, “Yeah… that is some great information right there.” I stumbled upon this article, So You Want To Make A Living Writing? 13 Great Truths by Bob Mayer on his blog Write On The River and was immediately drawn in to the positives: Yes, you can do it! It’s the best time to be a writer! The article is full of positive information.

So go check out this great article by Bob Mayer; check out his blog, too. And then consider if maybe, just maybe, now is the right time for you.
