OK so I have a job at a restaurant aa a dishwasher ands its going absolutely nowhere. I feel like a piss on at worm and they basically told me I wouldn't amount to anything. I want to quit my job as a dishwasher and become a writer. What's the best way to do this?

Find a better job than dishwasher and write on the side until you start earning enough money as a writer to survive.
Check out fiverr. com upwork. com and elance. com , you can find freelance job opportunities there and start building up a portfolio of blogs and articles. Even if your goal is to write novels or screenplays, this might not be a bad way to ease in to a career of getting paid for your writing so that you can eventually leave whatever job you're at and focus on your big picture.
Don't listen to people who say you can't do what you want. People like that are usually just bitter because their dreams have died and they've given up wanting more out of life.
There's a reason such a small percentage of people are really and truly successful and do what they love for work. Most people settle for something comfortable after running into some roadblocks along their way after the dreams... if they had any dreams to begin with.
Go for it!2

keep your day job. Becoming a writer is a passion but you can't expect to make an income from it unless you know the right people or have years of experience in the professional writing business, such as working at a publishing house or newspaper, magazine etc. It's unrealistic to think you can become a paid writer overnight, and whilst writing can be a hobby and something you want to aspire to do professionally, make sure you have another income first.1
