Is Writing a good Career option?

I think Writing is a great Career option. For me understanding Why I want to choose a Career in Writing is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Writing. My research about a 
Career in Writing became a lot more meaningful when I found:

Palash Krishna Mehrotra's take!

Career Video on Writing

In a video, Palash Krishna Mehrotra has talked about various aspects of a Career in Writing. Palash Krishna Mehrotra started by explaining Writing as: "Writing is a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion with signs and symbols. In most languages, writing is a complement to speech or spoken language. Writing is not a language, but a tool used to make languages be read." It was a very interesting video and I enjoyed watching it.

It was a welcome change to see the video touch upon Education as theoretical knowledge needed to excel at Writing, and not merely as Qualifications needed to enter Writing. Palash Krishna Mehrotra touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Reading Books of all Genres
  • Journals
  • Creative Writing
  • Liberal Arts
  • English & Grammar
Skills are the most important factor determining success in a particular Career.
Palash Krishna Mehrotra then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Writing:
  • Visionary
  • Patience
  • Ability to take Criticism
  • Empathy
  • Fearlessness
  • Self Discipline
Positives of this Career are quite interesting.
Palash Krishna Mehrotra believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Writing:
  • Self Satisfaction
  • Respect & Fame
  • Networking & Travelling
  • Intellectual Evolution
  • Work from Home
After a discussion on Positives, Challenges complete the caricature of a Career.
And, Palash Krishna Mehrotra believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Writing:
  • Lack of Certainty
  • Isolated Work
  • Keeping Yourself Motivated
