Work

I often get asked what I do for work and this article is a good summary of how I feel.

I’ve always had uneasy loyalties about the relevance of the term “work” to the activities I perform every day, and which occupy the hours when most other people are in fact “working”. I write novels and stories and essays for a living. And while I fairly mindlessly refer to what I do as “work” (“I’m working, I can’t help you shovel the driveway;” “I start work every day at eight and work on ’til cocktail hour;” “I’ve been working way too hard, I need a trip to Belize”), it’s hard for me to think that work is what I really do.
