How much do writers really make?
Here's a link to a very interesting post on the realities of writing income. Drives home how far I have to go, at least.

John Scalzi writes in a variety of genres, both fiction and non-fiction. In his blog, he gives insight - with hard numbers - into his writing income from SF. Genre fiction is generally a lower source of income than literary fiction or mainstream fiction.

Now I have a better yardstick!

Thanks a lot, John, for this illuminating discussion.

Enjoy, all of you, and my writer-kin should learn something from this. The most important lesson: don't be hasty in quitting the day job. Great advice!
