Job or Hobby?

I've enjoyed focusing on my book and writing for leisure. But with the economic market going crazy, I've decided to try making money at it. If I need a job, why not make work in the writing industry, yeah? Yes, (sigh) I know the quote about the starving artist. Don't like it.

I'm setting my sights on more than fiction. Learning about the huge market of non-fiction, it seems the lucrative path to pursue. History is part of that option so...being that I LOVE history, I may actually enjoy it. And since 1/2 of all the books I read are "how-to", maybe I was born to do this.

We'll see...I'll let you know. I've got lots of stories, articles and queries out there right now. Well, a lot for me. For a month I've been sending 2-5 of them each week. With fingers crossed plowing the mail carrier each day, maybe there's a check coming soon.

Hey, what's a writer without an imagination?
