3 Things Writers Are Tired Of Hearing

I am a writer -- I love writing, reading, creating relatable content, and my grammar can be flawless when I ain't speakin' in Ebonics. Even though being a writer has its perks, there are a few things writers are sick of hearing.

And Here They Are:

1) Can You Proofread & Edit My Next Novel?


If you're not paying me, I may not make the time to go over your content. People underestimate how busy professional writers or writing-related major college students are. We're constantly writing and we're swamped by our own assignments. The writer's life ain't coffee and beaches -- we write, all day long. The job never ends.
I like you -- I just don't have the time to proofread your 59-page paper on fat metabolism, or read your million-page romance novel. But hey, money always talks...

2) Can You Actually Do Anything With Your English Degree?

Yes, we can, smart-mouth. We can cover several areas and have varying roles. Not only can we teach, but we can write for marketing, become editors, go into law school, become archivist, work in public relations -- the opportunities are endless!

3) You Can't Really Make Money As A Writer

Listen, any job in the creative world is hard to come by, but you gotta get used to that hustle. And even though the job market is improving, there is still a lot of competition in many areas -- not just in writing. But as long as you work your butt off, and keep knocking on as many doors as possible, you'll get your leg in somewhere.
And when writers make it, they really make it. Think successful book writers, or even when a copywriter becomes a creative director for a large advertising firm.
Also, for some of us, money isn't everything. Some of us just want to go into a job that feels like a playground. We want to do something that makes us happy.

Writers rock.

@rodiziketan the perks are endless and i might just make that list! @greggr you're awesome! and they are extremely wrong!
These are three things that I have heard many, many times in my life, but have managed to prove people wrong on all three accounts (I'm a teacher now, and I have written plenty worth reading in my lifetime). Don't worry; the people who insist on saying these things are wrong @alywoah
Don't forget business! Plenty of English majors go into consulting, finance, management... yes, all those high paying jobs $$$$ ;D I studied literature, so I know the feeling. Hate that question!!!
@alywoah I think writers are writers because they can't be anything else. Great card!
This is all true haha. Now make a list of perks, I'm sure you can make an even longer one :) @alywoah

Get Paid To Cuddle Goats!
Feeling the strain of your office job? Has stress reached an all-time high? Maybe you're looking for something a little more? Well, fortunately, you're in luck, as a Virginia-based dairy farm is looking to hire volunteers to cuddle their goats. That's right. You - yes, you! - can be a professional goat cuddler. Caromont Farm is mainly a dairy purveyor, and its base farm in Esmont, Virgninia houses several cows and goats, and as the farm strives to ethically care for the livestock in their possession, all the animals are grass-fed and cared for by someone they describe as an 'assistant goat herds(wo)man'. (That could be you. If you get the job, that is.) According to the official job posting, in order to be an aforementioned goat-cuddling herdsman, these are the requirements the company expects from applicants: Able to lift 50 pounds Committed to local food and agriculture Works well independently and on a team Willing to take initiative Excited to learn Goat lover! Spanish speaking a plus+ Am I the only one that's a little confused as to why something like Spanish-speaking is required to hang out with goats? Anyway, if you know someone in the Virginia area that is willing to get their snuggle on with a billy goat, feel free to send them to the official volunteer website, where they'll be able to sign up for a four-hour cuddle shift. For the rest of you, I just want to know this: Would YOU want to become a professional goat cuddler? Or does your fear of intimacy extend to livestock? (Just kidding. I just wanted to make a creepy joke.) Anyway, leave your thoughts in the comment area below, and for more WTF news, follow the WTF Street Journal collection!
MSBI vs Power BI Tools
MSBI & Power BI are both popular services in the Business Intelligence World today. S o, here’s an article comparing both, MSBI vs Power BI, for your readers. that represents data so much better. Now, remember, MSBI is a product with ETL capabilities. It Extracts, Transforms & Loads Data, can organize and visualize multidimensional data, whereas, Power BI is a Data Analytics tools that offer Data modeling capabilities, including data preparation, data discovery and creating interactive dashboards. Hence, it wouldn’t be fair to compare both of these products. To get in depth knowledge on Microsoft business intelligence, enrich your skills on msbi online training professionals However, we can compare the reporting tool from both of these services. So basically, when I say MSBI, I’m going to talk about only one of the SQL Server Data Tools — SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Service) And when I say Power BI, I’m only talking about the Power BI Desktop, as it’s only fair to compare one reporting service to another. Following are the criteria on which the comparison shall take place through for MSBI vs Power BI: 1. Definition 2. License 3. Implementation 4. Benefits 5. Learning Aspect 6. User Experience 7. Data SSRS or SQL Server Reporting Service is a BI Service for data analysis and generating reports on Server Based Data. It was developed in 2004 by Microsoft, along with its Data Analytics(SSAS/SQL Server Analysis Service) and Data Integrating(SSIS/SQL Server Integration Service) counterparts. It is a comprehensive extensible reporting platform and includes an integrated set of processing component and programmatic interfaces. It is used to design test and deploy the report. Power BI, which is also developed by Microsoft in the year 2017, is a data analysis tool, which can be used for reporting and data analysis from the wide range of data source. Power BI desktop allows its users to create and publish reports on the fly, which the end-users can view using any browser. It is simple and user-friendly, which helps business analyst skills and empowers users to work easily on it. It is very useful for the analysis of complex and huge data-sets. It is widely used for modeling and structuring of unshaped data. Implementation: MSBI vs Power BI The biggest difference between these two systems is the way in which they are deployed. Power BI is a cloud-based software and is hosted on the vendor’s servers and accessed through a web browser, whereas, MSBI is an on-premise software is installed locally, on a company’s own computers and servers. The fact that both of these services are equally promising, has led to an ongoing discussion about the superiority and the security concerns of one over the other. In the case of Power BI, hardware failures do not result in data loss because of networked backups. Cloud computing uses remote resources, saving organizations the cost of servers and other equipment. A utility pay structure in Power BI enables users to only pay for the resources they use. However, with the rise of cloud-based services, fear comes into play. After all, you are trusting someone else to host your data, aren’t you? This fear is so widespread that many IT leaders believe that these powerful cloud services are a security nightmare. Benefits: MSBI vs Power BI Both of these services have their own benefits. While SSRS by MSBI has a better drill-down capacity Power BI, on the other side, has a plethora of rich visuals that represents data so much better. Which basically means, in MSBI, information to detailed data which is categorized by/focused in on a certain factor, is reached for effectively. But Power BI is a better Analytics tool due to its Data modeling capabilities and a strong visuals representation of data. Also, since, it was designed to improve the Self-Service capabilities of older SSRS, anybody who can visualize data can use it easily. Get more info at Msbi Online Training Hyderabad License The free version of MSBI lasts for 180 days followed by charges = $931. Power BI’s free version lasts for 60 days followed by charges = $9.99. NOTE: The pricing I’ve mentioned here are only the base price and there are other versions of these services and the prices vary for each of them. Learning Aspect Power BI is a graphical tool. So, through drag and drops, you can fulfill most of your requirements. But its background processes are hidden and you can’t understand how it processes internally. In SSRS, the developer has to do all the coding and designing of the report, therefore, the developer has a better picture of the process. User Experience Power BI has more of a graphical component as compared to SSRS. This makes the former way more efficient and easier to use, making SSRS the more manual and difficult option for analysis and generating the reports. Data Power BI can deal with structured as well as unstructured data but its data capacity is limited to 10 MB or 33,000 rows of data. SSRS deals with structured and semi-structured data and doesn’t put that much stress on the data engine, hence, you can create larger reports on it. Conclusion: MSBI vs Power BI SSRS is for your pixel perfect, operational reporting. Power BI is first and foremost an analysis tool, it allows you to visualize your data in different ways in order to allow deeper understanding of your business. Till now SSRS has a lot of presence but now Power BI has made its presence known across all domains. The choice between Power BI and SSRS would most likely be straightforward and driven by requirements. If your organization only uses paginated reports on-premises, you will decide that SSRS is a more cost-effective option. On the other side if you have the need to render interactive or analytical reports on-premises, or you already have SQL Server Enterprise Edition with Software Assurance, then Power BI Reporting Services will likely be your preferred choice.
