What if working a day job and writing didn't have to be a zero sum game? Hear from writers who have used their "day jobs" as inspiration, source material, and motivation to finish their books. We'll dig into how working and writing simultaneously doesn't always mean sacrificing one or the other, but rather, can create a balance leading to inspiration and success. What are the advantages of working and writing--and how do you find time for both? How can a day job both inspire and expose a writer to a world beyond what they've known?
