Earlier today I was screwing drywall to a garage ceiling and it got me wondering what other writers did for dough in the beginning.
I’m relatively young (25) and working on my first novel, but of course that’s not making me any money at the moment, so I help out with my father’s contracting business. It’s not too bad most of the time. There’s something to be said for about being physically exhausted after a day’s work. It also gives me time to think about my writing, since I’m given all the necessary yet monotonous, non-thinking work. (understandably…)
So, I thought I’d throw the question out there to whoever happens to be reading my humble blog– What do/did you do for money when you first started writing?
Eagerly awaiting your responses. 🙂
