There are these things where you go and do something for around 8 hours at a time and someone pays you. We artists like to call them “day jobs” so as not to confuse the perpetual drudgery with our real work, the writing.
Sometimes, I hear, the day job doesn’t have to be drudgery. It can be fun in and of its self. It can be interesting and fulfilling and creative, just like the writing. What? I shriek. What dark magic is this? Where have these horrid lies stemmed from?
I wonder if there is some truth behind this ludicrous nonsense. Could there be a job out there that I would find interesting and fulfilling and creative AND they would pay me? It seems like a quest worth pursuing.
