“Writing is not a ‘career’. There is no salary, no job security, no promotion, no pension, no guarantee of work, no guarantee that anyone will ever notice what you do. Writing is a calling. If you are called, answer. Prepare for a life of intense work at curious hours, likely obscurity and regular self-doubt, punctuated by periods of wonder that somehow make it all worthwhile.”
有一天，在公园里····· 女：”有三室两厅吗？” 男：”没有！” 女：”有路虎，奥迪吗？” 男：”没有！” 女：”有7位数存款吗？” 男：”没有！” 女：”那你有啥？” 男：”我………” 女转身就要走··· 突然男的说：”我是作家”！ 女立刻回头抱住男的腰，满脸崇拜的说道： “你不早说，写作压力这么大，如此辛若，你还没被累死，一定是个潜力股，这就够了！够了！” ——这是2019年度最励志的段子
