I think we who write and produce artwork wish we could do it full time. However, so many of us must put food on the table with other skills. 
   I do not lament my profession. I am very proud of the work I do. Like so many artists, I have a longing to express myself. Who doesn't, really? We are in many ways all the same. The only difference is that I found the time and ambition to write a novel.  The life experiences we gain from working and living are the reservoir of knowledge we use to create our stories. 
   Someday I may be able to feed myself with my writing. For now, I am content to put my hands to work making other people's homes a little more beautiful.

I commend you. I'm a dayjob writer also. Yes, I would love to write full-time but I must pay bills and I must eat food. (smile) But you are right, making the time and having the ambition to create is what pushes you through. Thank you for this post. I've had a stressful week at work thus far and this came at the right time. Good luck to you and Happy Writing!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the post. I think there are more of us that are day job witers than not. I'm also thrilled that it came at a good moment.

Wonderful that you have given yourself the gift of time in order to complete a novel. There are always reasons, like having a day job, that give people reasons not to follow their dreams. Very inspiring that you pushed them out of the way and reached your goal.

I also had a very supportive, wife, family, and friends. If it wasn't for the team I would have never gotten here.

It is very risk to start writing own book. When learning how to write a novel, it’s important to break it down step by step. The most critical part of your novel is the first chapter—which, coincidentally, is also the most exciting to write.
