We’ve all heard the expression “living the author’s life,” which is typically comprehended to indicate living a simple life with extremely little to do. No task, no rush, no issues. While others are hurrying out to work and striving to earn money, authors sit in the house and not do anything while making money for it. If just that were real,
In truth, the expression indicates absolutely nothing. It’s rhetoric.
