Writer with a Day Job

(2011)
Inspiration & Exercises to Help You Craft a Writing Life Alongside Your Career
A non fiction book by

 
Don't let the daily grind drain your creative energy!

You can work full time and still have a productive writing life. Many writers waste time waiting for the day they can finally quit their day jobs and live the so-called writing dream. Don't wait. You can do both - and your writing will be the better for it.

Balancing a full-time job and a productive writing life is no easy feat! This book offers writers advice, skill-building techniques, prompts, and exercises in every chapter, and strategies on how to get and keep writing while also working the 9 to 5 grind.

Readers will discover tips and exercises for:

  • Setting and protecting personal writing goals
  • Creating a schedule that complements their stamina
  • Getting creative before and after work - and on their lunch hour
  • Finding inspiration in the most unlikely of spots and at the most impromptu of times
  • Writing proficiently in multiple forms (long and short) so that they don't get bogged down writing one long project
  • Becoming an active participant in writing communities so they have a solid support system at the ready
  • Figuring out how (if at all) to share their writing life with co-workers, friends, and family members
You'll also get quick, practical tutorials to help you master scenes, point of view, characters, settings, dialogue, and more.

Writer With a Day Job gives you the strategies and motivation you need to work 40 hours a week (or more!) and achieve writing success.
