This is definitely me. My writing income is quite literally life changing - it's the difference between actually saving money and getting ahead and maybe one day buying my own home, and living a pleasant life in the meantime... or just treading water. That's the difference a grand a month makes. But a grand a month is still nowhere near enough to live off. Not even close.jb1111 said:Most of us probably have our indie writing as an accessory income at best -- to varying degrees
My day job isn't exactly stable either. But I would have to be really, really confident about a sustained source of income before I threw in even an unstable day job. I'd be more worried about the future success or failure of my own personal writing endeavours before I worried about Amazon pulling the rug out from under us.
