I work at publix and my weekly checks are terrible which only comes out to around 150 dollars. I'm looking to apply somewhere else but I can't keep doing retails or labor work. There has to be a way for me to be able to quit my job and make a living as a writer. Even if I can't afford a house but at least a cheap apartment or a studio is all I need. My only weakness in writing is grammar since I was born in a french speaking country. Please I've been a writer since I was 10 years old and I'm burning with passion.
