I am in awe of writers who have all-consuming jobs like teaching. I've blogged before how teaching pretty much drained me of my energy and (remaining) sanity. But I know I'd find even a regular, 9-to-5 gig challenging to fit around my writing life. I need the mental space.
On the flip side, lots of writers don't give up their day jobs even if they can, citing the importance of separating writing from income.
So I ask you: are you a full-time writer? Would you be, if you had the option? Why or why not?
