QOTD Tuesday August 30

Post  Maggie on Tue Aug 30, 2011 3:40 pm

No way! It's the last day of August! #TimeFlies

QUESTION: Is writing a hobby for you? Or something you MUST do? Or is it a future-career? Or all those things?

It's a hobby. I'd like to say it's something I MUST do, but I'm too sensible for that. It would make me VERY sad if I couldn't write, but life would go on, albeit it would be a tragic, meaningless life. Razz

It is also a future-career. I'm totally prepared with another career choice I think I'll really enjoy, but I know ultimately, I want to be a writer, first and foremost. ^^

Hmm...I'm pretty sure today is the second-to-last day of August. Otherwise my friend, Becky, whose birthday is tomorrow, might be a bit upset this year. Razz

Anyway....writing. It's sort of what Constance said--right now, it's a very important and delightful hobby, but not something I MUST do. Singing/worship is the only thing I can think of that I MUST do for my sanity. Very Happy I do see writing as sort of a half-career in my future, like selling a few books here or there, but I want my focus to be on editing. Together, they would hopefully give me enough income to live off of. Smile

@Twin *smiles* I like you. Have I said this before?? And what's your other career choice? I can't think of it right now. :\

@Renee I really like you too! I want to hear you sing sometime! Since you must sing to be sane, I imagine you're pretty good, yes?? And you could definitely get an income from being an editor. Razz And I'll be paying you.

Ditto the comment about the last day of August, haha. Wink

Writing is pretty much all of those things for me--hobby, since I'm unpaid, future career, since I'll get something published eventually, and something I must do, because I've always done it and I'm way too stubborn to quit. Razz I'm planning on being an English teacher, my "real" career, because it's much more guaranteed, but I'm really planning on having three careers, in a way. Like Renee', I need to sing to be sane, but if I go more than a week or two without writing anything, I do start going a little stir crazy. And as for hearing us sing, we're planning on posting a couple a cappella Beatles covers on Youtube, so we'll be sure to link to them when we get around to it, and you can decide whether we're any good, lol.

I think writing is a think you must do at least once in a lifetime Smile
I love writing not a hobby..an obsession just thinking of the endless possibilities makes me happy so writing them down and discussing them is wonderful ^^ *is currently on a different planet*

@Amanda & Renee You guys sound really good!! You should do more covers. Smile

As for the question, I do think of writing as a hobby. And I've always dreamed of seeing my own novels on the shelves in bookstores so it's definitely what I want to do as a career. I'd also love to teach Creative Writing at a University. Smile I wouldn't say it's something I must do but it's something I love so much that I don't want to give up on.

@Shahira I agree completely, @Amanda and @Renee, you should do more covers!!

And as for your reply, Shahira, that's awesome! I can't tell you how often (as I think about what I want my pub. name to be) I sit and am jealous of your amazing name. Razz You're gonna look so cool on the bookshelves! And teaching creative writing would be awesome. Very Happy
