The Value of Our Work

A series on the value of the written word by Michael A. Burstein.

This is a series worth reading as a freelance author and for those people who love them... or at least want to work with them. We work just as hard as everyone else. So, why don't people respect that?

People, even people who should know better, don't consider writing as work.

I've literally cut brush from sunup to sundown during the summer. I've surveyed in bone-chilling blizzards and waded through chest-deep sloughs in winter. That was often easier than writing.

Most people simply do not understand or believe that. To them it's just sitting on your ass in front of a computer and thinking up shit to write about. What could be difficult about that?

No kidding. I've worked harder as an author than I ever have in my entire life.
