I'm a writer. This explains perfectly why I stayed in an intellectually undemanding job for 30 years. Why I never tried to finish my degree and get a "really good" job. I didn't want to spend the time on it. It doesn't take a college degree to make you a writer. All it takes to write is pencil and paper. (LOL, it takes a fast computer and an excellent word processing program, who am I trying to kid? But not kidding about the degree.) Oh, wait. It takes a pencil, paper and TIME--both real time and mental air time.
