No I do it using Turbo Tax, much easier. I have to admit, I keep up with my income from writing and what I've spend at least montly, so it's not such a chore at the end of the year.
No matter what the ease may be now, when I'm all done it does make me wonder why on earth I'm spending so much time writing. My income for all my efforts certainly doesn't make up for how much I've spend on traveling and promotion.
So, you might ask, once you've had this proof why do you keep doing it?
As any writer will tell you, even the ones in similar shoes to mine, it's not possible to quit. Writing is a powerful addiction.
I write two mystery series and if I didn't keep writing, how would I find out what happened to my characters?
(Me at last year's PSWA Convention.)
Now, I have to share that I do have balance in my life because I have a big family, and there's always something going on. We have lots of weddings, and of course the babies follow.
I'm blessed to live fairly close to most of my family members so I do get to spend time with many of them.

Anyone else have any of these feelings?
