Have you ever considered these questions: What is my passion? Should I follow my passion in a career choice? What if I don’t have a passion?
I’m following my passion now (right here, folks!), but first I took the practical route. I have a career I enjoy, that pays decently and means I don’t have to worry a lot about money…leaving me free brain space for plot twists and world building, word count and polishing. You know, being an author. That’s the passion. Writing has always been the passion. Now I pursue it because I can. I don’t get to spend as much time at it as I’d like, but I get to fill those odd moments, and a few planned ones, with what I love. That. Is. Awesome. Expecting it to pay the bills would be another level entirely, a concept that I’m not entirely prepared to face. I’m risk-averse. I like a steady paycheck. 🙂
Now tell me, what’s your take?
