nosebleed, stress, business

A writer's work means writing intensely for 8 to 9 hours a day for almost two weeks. And she still has to finish a take-home exam for Contemporary Philosophy tomorrow.

And The New Republic magazine calls her kind "The New Proles." It can be acknowledged as form of flattery based on realism and a slightly leftist orientation that blames the system for taking away her dignity.

Writers are poor.

That's writing for 40 hours a week for next to nothing. And if it isn't for love, it's disillusionment. #
