I started a new job a few weeks ago – you know, the kind of job that pays the bills, not writing.
Like my previous post at BT, it is office-based – with a bit of driving thrown in for variety – and (thankfully) it allows me the time to get some words down during my day. I don’t really know how I would manage a full-time job and still find the energy to sit down and commit to the story once I got home, and had been fed and watered.
I’m glad I’ve never had to answer that question, and long may it continue. Otherwise I may forget I’m a writer and get sucked in to the daily grind of the nine-to-five.
