Does being a writer stress you out? Well, you have come to the right place! Not only does this site provide freelance writers to meet and chat with one another, it allows some healthy advice to be shared. As a writer, I have worked with many people. Some people want to pay you for your work, and others just want your work hoping that you won't ask for compensation. I find that it is important to accept these jobs. Anytime a writer makes money, it's a huge accomplishment. Anytime a writer is recognized as a writer, it's another huge accomplishment. My point here is that we should be giving our work away before we expect anything in return. Being an artist will stress you out because being an artist has a lot of requirements. One of these requirements is giving apart of yourself to your audience every time you make something. Does being a writer stress you out? Good! That means you are being a writer!

Oh, I have no doubt that even people who write poorly are writers. The requirements to being an artist are not how well you do your art, but where you are mentally and emotionally when doing so. If you do art, and internally you hate making art, then should you be doing art? There will be times when you write and you want to slam your head into the wall, and maybe you do for five minutes, but afterwards you get right back to work and focus on the WORK because that's what you love to do your art. Being an artist is not about how talented you are. Being an artist is about making something bigger then ourselves.

I do believe that writing is an art and, no, I haven't slammed my head against a wall because of it. I have just shut down my computer a few times and I even punched my monitor once when the computer bailed on me. I lost a good deal of WORK then. Wasn't happy.

haha that's awful. One time, after working for five hours straight, I finally finished an illustration on photoshop, and my computer crashed and I lost it. I was crying forhours.

The only stress that I have from writing is that people want more. They think that I don't write enough.
