What is it like to be a professional writer? I enjoy writing a lot, but I don't know if I could do it as a profession. And even if I could I wouldn't know where to begin. Any thoughts?

If you want to be a writer, it is important that you have a passion for it. You under most circumstances have to make sure that you can handle it. Most writers work from home, and you need to know that if you were at home that you would actually work LOL. its also pretty important to make sure that you are writing about something that you enjoy writing about. This way your "job" is soemthing that you love. If you end up writing about things that you hate then you will not be happy with your career decision. Good luck.

It's good that you have the passion to write. maybe you can start blogging and then publicize it. Eventually, you will be able to monetize it. Just keep on researching and you will surely get a good site that will help you become a professional writer. Good luck!
