Writing as a hobby loss

Upon reporting my taxes this year, my accountant said I might qualify for a “hobby loss.” This is, as far as I understand, when you don’t make enough money from your business that your expenses are greater than your pay.

Great, even the government thinks my writing is just a hobby.

Mind you, it was in relation to my freelance reporting that I’ve been doing, and not my creative writing, but it still shows the idea that until you’re rolling in it, writing is just an expensive hobby.
