So Why Do I Still Work?

Day 16

So someone asked me today:

“If you want to publish a novel, why are you working a full-time job?”

It’s a fair question. After all, getting a novel ready for publication isn’t an easy task. Having to work 40 hours a week, plus commuting, eats up a lost of time for the week.

So here’s why I still continue to work:

  • Loans to pay off.
  • Steady source of income.
  • I like my job.

As I’ve said before, writing is more of a hobby than a career for me. When I get Perverse Selection published (either traditional or self) it’ll be something to cross off my life goal list.

I enjoy writing, and I want to keep it that way. 😀
