My Publishing/Writing Love Triangle

Rebecca Slater, on balancing working as a writer with a career in publishing. 

It is telling that, upon meeting both a writer and a publishing professional, I get a different reaction when I tell them I do both.

For the publishing professional, the standard reaction is: “Oh, that must be tough trying to write as well.”
