I work full time in an office, which is anathema to the aspiring writer. The siren’s call of a science fiction career calls to me from the shore. I want to write full time, but know I’m not even close to there yet.
I love it, though. I love writing and reading it. To me, it makes for a perfect outlet in life.
I often wonder if I do my full time career in the office as a means to pay for my real job as a writer.
I can’t be the only person to feel like that. And sadly, not everyone who feels that way will make it.
But the one key to it all is to continue pushing forward with it, despite everything.
If you continue plowing the field and planting the seed, eventually something will grow.
