I love your approach and attitude. I think it all comes down to what you consider “work”, as far as if it works or not. At the very least, you’ll be creating a passive stream of income for yourself, through a craft I presume you enjoy. You won’t have to resort to trying to sell a course, rage porn or click bait to realistically make money through writing and at bare minimum, it’ll be a learning experience for you. You’ll be able to determine what worked and what didn’t — as you define the terms of both . I commend you and wish you all the best in your venture.
