Re: Writing careers/hobbies on the side?
I left band directing eight years ago to pursue writing. I'm lucky that I live in an area that supports private lesson teachers, so I was able to transition into that role to earn an income. Since I left public school teaching, I've written three novels (none yet published mainly because I've been too much of a perfectionist to send them out but that's changing this fall). While the journey has had it's own ups and downs, I wouldn't change a thing.
Best of luck in your decision!
Hey all! I was just wondering if any of you are authors or generalized writers outside of band (or if you quit band to become an author). I've been looking at writing something in my spare time so I was curious to see if anyone else felt the call of the novel.
