I've not got long left at school, another year and I'm finished and I haven't got the faintest idea what I want to do. I originally thought game design, and now I have come to the conclusion that I love writing want to be a writer. If I could become a writer full time I would, but two major reasons stop me from wanting to do this. The first is money, of coarse you can't live in today's world without it, and everyone knows that writers don't exactly earn enough to live on. The second is loneliness. I often think of writing as me sitting at a desk at home for six hours a day, not talking to anyone, not having any social interactions with other people. What do you guys think? Is writing lonely and is it something that a young person should aspire to do? Or is full-time professional writing for older people? I'm thinking of going to university and studying to become an engineer or something, and write in my spare time. Just wanted to ask you guys what you thought about full-time writing as a profession, and see what the ups and downs are.
