A Writing Journey

Full-time Writing?

It’s the dream,  isn’t it. To have no obligations other than writing. To be free of the dreaded nine-to-five (or part time job that leaves you with an unpredictable schedule).

Well,  it’s possible that,  due to some exciting circumstances, I will have this opportunity soon. And I’m terrified. Full time writing is all that I have ever wanted. I’ve been writing since I knew how. But I haven’t been published. Not even a short story or a poem.

The cynical part of me says it’s foolish to drop my “real job” for something that has never paid off. The optimistic part of me knows that if I devoted myself fully to writing, more would come of it.

The time isn’t here yet,  so I suppose I shouldn’t think too much about it. But when it comes, what will I do?

Keep writing,  my friends.



Comments on: "Full-time Writing?" (2)

  1. I used to want to write full-time, but I realize that I write better and have more motivation when I have something else going on (my “real” job). I fear that if I wrote full-time that writing would become just another “job.”

  2. It would be awesome to be able to write full time. Part of my fear is the sustainability of money through it, yes, but I also worry that I’ll run out of ideas.
