Writing as a profession is quite diverse. Luckily. On the other hand, it is somewhat confusing for many people that there are so many different names for this activity. I notice this again and again, for example, when I tell people that I am an author. "Ah, you write novels!", it says then. Or when I say that I am an editor. "Ah, you work at the newspaper!", is usually the answer. Or when I talk about my blog. "Oh, you’re an influencer!" then comes. No, no and no again. I think it’s high time for some clarification.
Writing as a profession: here’s how the different job descriptions differ
I have studied business administration and have a degree in business administration. My first and only job took me to a specialized publishing house, where I worked as an editor. (Although I was hired under the job title "editor". But that’s another story.)
