“Hey, while traveling the world with my spouse, I think I’ll work on my novel….”
“Gee, now that I’m laid off, I can finally work on my novel….”
“My cousin’s brother’s girlfriend’s aunt knew a guy who knew this girl who made tons writing her first award-winning NYT’s best-seller romantic fantasy dystopian zombie mainstream young adult novel that actually went to auction….”
Was the uniqueness of writing something that attracted me to it? No, not even. It was always the whole writing bit that I’d just gravitated to…and it wasn’t like I was sitting there throwing darts at “Things to do When I Grow Up”…it was just something that organically emerged from within at a young age.
Right, like every thirty-something out there, today. Twenty-something. Teen-something. I’m waiting for the first Ga-Ga Doodle Book from an infant-something….
I’ve always played with words. Some would say I’m just playing with punctuation, too, but that’s another story.
So, what’s a unique job today? What can I shoot for when I grow up that is not commonplace, with all these millions now becoming astronauts and best-selling noveliers?
What could I do to make a living at The Unique?
Let’s see..I could be:
A snowplow driver.
A bounty hunter.
Oooh…ice cream truck driver!
Well, there are plenty of odd and weird unique jobs I could look into…but, clearly what I’m really looking for…is for all of you aspiring writers out there to take a hard look at any of the above interests.
So that I can get back to working on my own novels without all of your interference….
