Weekend Edition – Writing is My “Real” Job

“Your vocation is said to be your professional calling. It is your career, a serious pursuit that in a perfect world is specially suited to your specific talents and skills. An avocation, on the other hand, is a hobby, something you do outside of your “real” work. The subtext here is that it’s something you do for fun, in part because you’re not good enough to make a living at it. Most writers think of their writing as an avocation.”

This is a must-read. I’m planning to give up my day job to focus on my writing. I’ve always wanted to write my own manuscript and the only thing that has been holding me back is my current job. I’m really glad I came across this post. <3
