Is writing at home a real job? Maybe for Steven King. But is it a real job for aspiring authors who haven’t been published and aren’t seeing any money yet? Most authors (including me) think so, but there are always those who disagree, who see it as a lazy excuse to stay home.
The great write-at-home debate has finally been settled in the Yahoo universe.
This Yahoo news article officially classified “Writer/Editor” as number 9 in the top 10 legitimate stay-at-home jobs. Whatever you or I may think about Yahoo news’ idea of journalism, we must admit that it reflects the appetites and attitudes of pop culture. If Yahoo says it, most everyone is going to ingest it by the end of the day.
So those of us who write full-time at home, let’s raise our fists high and claim the respect we deserve as hard workers!
