It looks like writing isn’t building as quickly as I hoped, so I have no choice but to look for a second job to get enough income to pay the bills. I didn’t want to, but life wasn’t giving me another choice.

The good news is I like my job. It reminds me of Disney but without the pressure to get as many sales as possible.
