I read this article once about TV writing where someone said every single day feels like a fight to keep your job, how you could create something really quality but if the ratings aren't high enough your show is canceled and that's that. I related very much to that idea.

I'm not saying don't do it. You should do what you gotta do, consequences be damned. But go in with a plan for how to handle the anxiety, rejection, and financial uncertainty, because Publishing can be brutal af for the authors who don't become instant bestsellers.

I've had conversations with friends who have benefits and 401Ks who are like "You should keep doing what you love. As long as you have a roof over your head and enough food to eat, what more do you need?" IDK. Maybe the knowledge that roof will still be there in 6 months?"

Imagine working your ass off for years to achieve your biggest goal in life and then living every day after that knowing the thing you love to do might be ripped from your life without warning, no matter how much you give or how hard you try. That's being a published author.

Over my years doing freelance I eventually learned about contracts, negotiating up front pay, setting rates, not doing spec work (hey remember that Ubi/HitRecord thing from E3?), charging overtime, saying no, etc. But you never have any security. Every job could be your last.

Ahh, that makes sense. I'm much more likely to binge/focus intensely when it comes to books :) Though I have to admit, I'm on watch #2 of Westworld and it's astounding all the stuff I'm picking up on the second time around. But it demands total focus.

But that's why I *need* them. Otherwise I'd never stop to actually do all the things I gotta do every day. Not that I watch TV that much, but I'm definitely prone to watching several epis in a row all glassy-eyed and addicted if I like the show and there are no fixed breaks :)

I don't understand why people pay for services to eliminate commercials. Commercials are when I fix snacks, flip my laundry to the dryer, vacuum, scoop the litter box, read over my revision notes, do my daily Spanish practice, etc. How do y'all get your chores done? :)
