In short: because I like it

I’m not trying to leave it.


1. I LIKE working

2. I like “the sandbox” of work

3. I like the human interaction

4. I love working on product teams

5. I like earning an income

6. I like the structure

7. I like the security

8. I LIKE my job

9. I’m good at my job

10. I prefer “the real world” of a job


1. I just want to let my writing “be writing”

2. My writing’s isn’t save me or “earn its keep”

3. My writing’s job isn’t to “make it big”

4. The real world (and work) inspires writing

5. On “enough time:” creativity loves constraints

6. Writing gets to stay joy-first
