I found this article which was a funny read. Writer is number three on the list of careers for people who don't like people. Good to know, especially since it's not as if we need to do our own promotion. Also I was very happy to see that the median salary for writers was over 65K a year. I should be getting my check in the mail soon, right?
In all honesty I'm pretty sure they lumped in technical writers, add writers, copywriters, and others like that. And I doubt the average salary included those of us wannabes who are working but not getting paid. Yet.
Personally I'm not very outgoing in real life. Shocking I know. But I love the writing community I've found on line. When we're with other writers we're a pretty outgoing bunch.
