If you want to make a lot.

I'm inclined to say this is how it works across the whole writing world and not just across Medium. That if you want to make a whole lot of cash as a writer, then you've also got to be willing to barely scrape by.
Of course, I've only made a lot of money on Medium, but today I'm letting you in on a certain kind of pep talk that I have given myself since day 1 (April 25, 2018).
This is going to be hard.
Nobody needs to downplay how hard it is to write for a living with no guarantee of a decent paycheck. It's hard at the beginning and it never gets any easier. If anything, you simply get better at taking bigger risks.
And hoping for the best.
