I consider my writing to be both work and hobby. My "serious" writing on the whole woman hub is definitely a part of my work as a birth worker and activist and my "fun" writing on answer angels and other hubs is an awesome hobby. I love writing and would love to have more time to dedicate to both the serious and fun writing that I do.
I think mine is somewhere between the two. It began as a hobby but I'm so passionate about it and about helping other writers gain confidence that I'm taking it much more seriously now. My ultimate goal (or maybe fantasy) is to retire from the 9 to 5 and just write to my hearts content.
I studied newsmedia and journalism so I could write. It's been years since I earned a weekly wage because I've been raising kids, so since I started earning money here it's definitely become a job. And how lucky am I! I get to write about stuff I'm passionate about!
