When asked for my occupation I’ll sometimes add another one to it. I’ll answer that I’m a homemaker and a writer.
In last week’s post I shared with you that, as a homemaker, I take pride in my role and I really appreciate it whenever a bank clerk, or any other employee who is asking me about my job, accepts my answer without any further comment.
Can you guess how different people’s reaction is towards a writer? Can you imagine the comments they are making? Writers, whether published or not, know what I’m talking about. People are usually thrilled and find it very interesting, a quite exciting job to have. Strangly, nobody has ever asked me the same question they ask after I’ll answer homemaker as for my occupation…
Have you ever thought about taking a job to earn a little extra income?
Unless a writer is famous or has written a bestseller, she will not make a fortune but hardly enough to make a living.
On the other side, there are two major advantages this job has:
- Flexible hours
- Free choice of workplace
How about you? Are you a writer, perhaps even a published one? Which hours of the day do you find best for your writing? Do you type on your computer or do you handwrite some of your thoughts, too?
