A message from someone left on a sheet of paper

My artistic life changed when I started working for a business that charges £1000 a day for writing. Four figures for words! I know in the arts we rarely get to work for people/orgs who have lots of money but I think something shifted for me when I realised there is a market for words and writing and creativity and I'm allowed to value what I do and choose who I work with and charge what I'm worth (not what I think the budget will be) I don't suggest this as a solution to structural inequalities but I found the shift in my perception has really helped.
