How do you write and keep your day job?
Topic: How do you write and keep your day job?
April 21, 2019 / By Thrud Question:
I've heard of writers who have their books published, and despite being in the financial position to give up on their days jobs, they continue to balance them with their writing. Does anyone have any experience in this kind of position? What is the best route? (Employment and Balance or Unemployment/Full Time Writing?)

Freelancing in any profession is a roller coaster of boom and bust income. Keep in mind that if you work independently, it's not only about writing. It's about socializing, networking and soliciting for future work, will can take up to 50% of your time. In the end, you may find that you spend less, not more time writing on your own than working for an employer.
The upside of freelancing is that you have direct contact with the client, sometimes have more freedom to write without a creative director or copy editor hacking your stuff to pieces.
Self-employment of any kind is not just "be your own boss. Work when you want to." It's about spending half your time looking for new work, worrying about whether the check really IS in the mail, and having enough work to sustain you.

It's the old show biz saying, "never give up your day job."
Look, you need money so until your ship comes in never give up a paycheck and keep writing. I think the odds are so remote that you'll succeed that it's actually working against you to write without a job with the increased financial pressure. By continuing to work you are actually giving yourself a better chance to be a writer.
