Donald F. Glut’s various projects (films and comic books)

Donald F. Glut, Writer, Film Director, and Screenwriter: And I looked at my friends who were successful and they were all concentrating on the thing they did best and once I learned that a lot of doors opened up for me.

Film Courage: Don how many office jobs or day jobs have you had in your lifetime?

Don: In my entire lifetime? Let me see, what kind of normal jobs that I have? When I was about 12, I had a paper route for a while and I delivered neighborhood newspapers. When I was 17 I worked a month and a half in a greeting card and wrapping paper company in Chicago. Then I worked once during Christmas vacation for a month and a half for a book company in Chicago putting bins together and stocking shelves of books.

When I moved to California (as an adult) I had a girlfriend whose mother didn’t believe that writing was a real job, so to impress the mother, I took a job at an advertising agency in the daytime and then to make a little more money I worked in a bookstore at night. The only time I was home was when I was sleeping or in between the two jobs and I think that was pretty much it. I don’t think any of these jobs lasted more than about a month and a half.

Film Courage: Has it been your life’s mission to not work a quote-unquote day job?…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
