Eight Things Every Writer Has to Face

So, you want to be a writer?

Congratulations. This is a noble profession, with a long and prestigious history. You will be joining a society that includes William Shakespeare, Ernest Hemingway, Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, and other notable scribes.

However, this is also an undertaking that is not for the faint of heart. Simply put, you need to have a thick skin if you want to survive.
