Close on the heels of the poll results which indicated that most people in Britain would rather be writers than anything else, comes this dash of cold water from the man who writes The Guardian's delightful digested reads: "...while there are a small number of writers making a decent living, something like 80% of published authors earn less than £10,000 per year." So, inevitably: " all means, write, if you enjoy it. But, if you value your sanity - and that of any readers - keep it to yourself. Keep the dream; just don't give up the day job."
