I assume most of us on here love writing but very few of us are actually established authors or let alone even published authors.
Until that time comes, are you all happy with your current jobs/careers? Do your jobs have anything to do with the writing world? (Professor, Journalist, Editor, etc).
Personally, my job has nothing to do with being an author, but with public health. I don’t know if I can say that I’m happy as I am semi-content. I still have this goal/dream of being a successfully published author, and I work toward it everyday, or at least I try to. But I still have bills and loans to pay and know I can’t depend on writing. And I guess it helps that I do enjoy Public Health, specifically Epidemiology. I just can’t help but feel like I should’ve been… further by now, as a writer.
So, are you all happy with your current jobs (those who have not yet published or made a name for themselves), if yes or no, why? Do you still want to make it or are you content with writing for leisure?
