I've had this cold for over a week now and I feel like death warmed over! I coughed all night long and the cough medication that I have left is not working. My head is throbbings and my back is killing me. All I want to do is climb into bed and sleep for about a month. But I can't do that because I have to go to work tomorrow.
Ya know, I would do almost anything not to have to work the typical, standard job. I want money, to get paid, but I want do something I love. I don't hate my job. I just don't love it. But what I have to wonder is this: if at some point I do start writing - mostly erotica - full time and can make a living off of it and I'm writing every day about sex, and sex toys, and sex positions, and so on will I still love it? Or will it become like a job? Will I say to my partner at night, "Not tonight honey - I've been writing about sex and looking at porn all day. If I see another dick I'll puke!" Because I'd rather work a job I'm not overly thrilled with all day and then come home and write about sex and get all worked up and want to fuck afterwards.
Are there other sex writers out there who do this pretty much full time who can tell me what their experiences are? Are you like the gynecologist who comes home at night and can't stand the thought of touching his wife or does writing about sex all day just turn you on more?
