As I return to school (Master’s degree) I stumbled on a few student verses writer key points.
Student: Struggling to increase word count.
Writer: Struggling to decrease word count.
Student: Attempting to remain engaged in educational books on subject of major.
Writer: Attempting to absorb as many books and information on the craft as possible.
Student: Staying up late to study, thinking why did I decide to do this to myself!
Writer: Staying up late to work on a manuscript thinking I can keep going, where is the caffeine, I got this!
Student: I have to pay WHAT?!?! for each class!
Writer: I could possibly not be paid for this….ever!
