If you’re dreaming of being a successful writer, you may not be aware of some hidden costs of doing business, such as buying your marvelous editor dinner every week, subscribing to writing magazines and buying books on the writing craft, sending your fabulous agent gourmet coffee every month, increased coffee consumption for creativity and energy, a whopping Internet bill to help you do the inevitable research and access the latest sales at Nordstrom quickly and efficiently, and having Mr. Cheezzy’s Pizza Mindful Vegan to Go Restaurant on speed dial when multiple deadlines loom.
But you didn’t think about your water bill, did you? If you’re one of those writers who contemplates characters and plots while showering, perhaps you’ve seen an uptick in your water bill when you’re under deadline, or just pondering the prospect of sending your book baby into the world. If so, you’re in good company, as you will see from the water bill Lisa Carter’s husband submitted to her. Seems her most productive writing time coincided with an increase in water usage. Hmmm.
Was it worth it? Take a look at Lisa’s books and see what you think! http://lisacarterauthor.com/
