The Middle Class Writer

Hey 3.5 readers.

Writers.  It seems like they’re even Bohemian coffee shop dwellers, jotting their stories down and never making a cent, or fabulously wealthy bestseller slingers who could write a grocery list on the back of a toilet paper roll and rake in the dough.

In other words, they’re either really poor and their parents are pissed off by their life choices, or they’re rich and the toast of the town.

Will tech make more middle class writers?  Writers who aren’t raking in James Pattersonian/Steven Kingian levels of dough, but aren’t unwashed and destitute either.

Thanks to self publishing, social media, blogging etc they’ve created a fan base and are able to sell enough to live a decent life style.  House.  Bills paid.  Needs met.  Kids and family taken care of.  Parents feel no need to be embarrassed.

Will tech make more and more middle class writers?  Has it already?

Discuss.
