Writerly Gooderly

Doing some stuff tonight that's a lot like writing... like, uh, I'm a writer or something.

For some reason, I don't feel that writing copy for an insurance website all day really counts. But oh boy, my brain does. My brain is tired of insurance writing, and resume writing, and now book writing, oh my.

I hate to tell my brain that in order to continue to find some measure of financial security - and in order to get a car (let alone all the other stuff that comes after that) - I'm going to need to pick up some freelance jobs here real quick, too.

Oh, man, my brain hurt just typing that.

The writing life isn't terribly romantic. Mainly, it means non-stop work in your chosen profession.

It just so happens you actually like your profession.

3 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

It's not so bad if you ask me. But then again, all of my writing is sports. All of it.

And yeah, yo - you're not writing a book on the side (so far as I know...).

Writing all day isn't so bad. It's coming home and writing some more - and doing resumes on the side - that starts to sap the energy.

The days that are just writing-dayjob are awesome. It's... everything else sometimes that makes me tired.

I LOVE my life. These are great "problems"(!) to have. Just an observation.
