What is up with people needing PROOF of how much we make? 


The pictures of the women and cars I plan to drive will be on my twitter, and then people can guess with envious eyes

Why is it that we all agree it was disrespectful for the neighbor to ask for proof that the OP writes for a living, but it seemed fine and dandy for some people to come out and jab a finger at TattooedWriter in his thread about making a living writing short stories and novellas and demanding proof from him in the form of titles/ranks/whatever? It's the same disrespect that was shown to the OP.

Thread is here for those interested: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,121594.0.html    The demands start flying on page 6.

The way I figure it, I've got books ranging from 99c to $5!

Or maybe I can just publish a book...

David you scare me sometimes...
Fortunately I can turn that fear into something happening in a book. Ah the power of writing... :)

It's forum decorum to eat low to mid lister's. Moderators will take a holiday and only lock the thread once one of the bigger regular KB members are directly attacked. They won't protect you unless your part of the established clique here. They will even make tidy the posts to protect the guilty, much like those people in movies.
The regular posters are then mildly chided and KB continues :)

...they still ask if I actually make a living at it. I find that highly annoying and disrespectful. So now I say. "Yeah I do. So, what do you do for a living?" No matter what they say, I look shocked and respond with "Wow, can you actually make a living at that?"  I don't make a lot of friends that way; but I honestly don't give a hoot. ;D

I love this!

I have made half my living working from home since 2008. The hardest part for me has been the people who assume that since I am home, I am somehow able to take phone calls all day, or even worse watch someone's kids for them...  They can't grasp that I am actually busy.
