The Perfect Job
What is the perfect job for a writer-in-training--apart from being paid to write, obviously? I am very impressed by people like Tess Gerritsen who manage to excel in both a serious career and in writing. She was a doctor before she was a writer. It takes so much brain power and effort to be a doctor how could there be any energy left to produce a novel? Me, I want the most brainless, highly paid job out there so that I can be free to think about my stories, or, better yet, write stories. A job that simply requires my presence, but doesn't require me to actually do anything. Any thoughts on what that might be?
