Zen Pencils

2013-01-08-alanwatts

The other night I was talking to a friend of mine about wanting to quit my corporate job and write full time. It’s a wish I’ve had for years, that always ends with me talking myself out of it, because of money, stability, grass-is-greener syndrome, etc. So he sent me this.

It really struck home.

I am now a huge fan of this guy. Do yourself a favor and check out his stuff, if you haven’t already.

  1. I have this thought everyday. I had a lifelong dream of being a writer, which I inexplicably (even to me) gave up when I was in college and decided to go pre-med. Now, after 12 years in a “successful” corporate career, I have found my way back to it through my blog. Thanks for the recommendation here, it’s nice to know that others are going through the same!

  2. Thanks so much for your comment! Finding like-minded people and fellow writers was the reason I started my blog. I’m deep in the trenches of querying and while I’m nowhere near to giving up, it can be discouraging, so I’m grateful for these bits of encouragement I get along the way.

  3. This was such an inspiring recommendation. There’s a large community of writers that you can find throug blogging and that can help you on your way of becoming a published author. It’s certainly possible to make a living from it. I did it, so you can too. Just never give up 😉
