Most of us aren't full-time authors and artists, and if you are, then that's totally awesome. Many of us have alternate identities. We might let our souls take flight as writers and artists by night, but during the day, we have to put on a separate mask for our day jobs. I currently work part-time for a city newspaper. I am also a stay-at home mom- that's my main job. All of you stay-at-home parents out there know that taking care of a child comes with duties around-the-clock, so it's more than just a 9 to 5 kind of a gig. As long as my child is up and about, I don't have any time to do my fiction writing. But I enjoy being a parent and I also like writing for the paper, so for that, I'm grateful for my "day jobs."
What is your day job?
