IWSG: Finding a Day Job You Love
I don't know how big this is about to be, font-wise (I'm on my phone), but hello! This is the monthly blog hop for Insecure Writers. Feel free to join in at www.insecurewriterssuportgroup.com. There you can visit the Sensei, Alex J. Cavanaugh, the co-hosts for the month, and other insecure writers!
I am writing this while hiding in the basement at work. I've been doing secretary work since I quit my data entry job way back when, and I kind of regret it daily. But I didn't prepare well enough and certainly didn't know well enough to find a job I like. I thought I'd get published right out of college. Pfff.
So, while you're writing and waiting, and if you can't afford to not work, definitely find a day job that makes you happy in the meantime. It's no fun dreading going in to work each day.
This month's question has a less dismal answer from me: Have you ever surprised yourself with your writing?
I have! My current WIP in particular has gone places I never expected, and I love it. I hope others will, too, one day.
See you around the blogosphere!
