Writing for a living

I was just thinking how nice it would be to write for a living — not fiction works, for that’s not something I’m either good at nor really passionate about, but non-fiction, self-improvement, finance literature, of which I am rather passionate about and am pretty interested in.

The problem here of course is that as much as the market is a pretty large market, I hardly see myself (yet) as one of the better writers; as one of whom has much experience or value-added thoughts to add to the already saturated world of self-improvement and financial literature.

And so I decide to not do it.

But after making the decision, I suddenly feel a little lost, and not quite knowing what else to do, especially with my free time.

I should really go get a job, one that allows me (at least in part) to do what I love. And then perhaps after some time spent in the finance sector I’ll be able to come back to freelance in writing, and actually feel like I’ve got something to offer.
