I’ve been successfully writing for just over two decades now, or is it three? By successful, I mean I’ve mostly supported myself as a writer for that length of time, mostly. For much of that time I was single parenting three kids with extremely low child support. I’m sincerely glad my kids have grown up and are truly on their own.
