“If your writing career is likely to be lonely, unstable, poorly paid, sporadic and emotionally draining – then perhaps your alternate source of income should be the exact opposite! But always aim to do things that will reflect well on your ambitions – if your life looks pretty humdrum, then people may assume that you and your writing are, too. And be careful about being spread too thinly across too many areas at the same time – stability and focus may be better for your bank balance, career progression and your mental wellbeing.”The Writer As Entrepreneur: Job tips for Writers, Ian Kennedy for Writing West Midlands handout, 2011
