How to Write Full-Time in the 21st Century

It’s official. Writers are paid less than McDonald’s servers. Minimum wage in the UK is £7.83 an hour (as of April 2018). McDonald’s workers in the UK are paid £8 -10 an hour. At £8 an hour, if they work 8 hours a day, 20 days a month, their annual salary is £15,360. The Guardian says the median income of professional writers in the UK is under £10,500 a year, a fall of 42% since 2005.
