AUTHORS: Where is your money spent?

MCS BLOG 6K.M. Weiland asked authors where they spend the most amount of money. Here are some of the more popular answers:

“Reading fiction and non-fiction books.”



“Publishing/Writing magazines.”

“Writing supplies/laptop.”

“Writing software/writing apps.”


I was extremely happy to see that “reading” was the most popular answer. If you don’t read good books, bad books, fiction books, non-fiction books, and all kinds of other books, it’s impossible to develop your craft.

All of the other answers seemed logical, but not one person said that they invest time or money in marketing.

One author said, “I can’t afford marketing.”

This is why only 2-5% of authors have a career earning at least $50,000 a year. It’s also a shame that most authors who fail are amazing writers and storytellers.
