Writing at work

I’m looking for a day job that lets me write at work or gives me enough free time that writing is easy. Anybody have experience with this?

    I have a warehouse/delivery job that I write at when I have downtime, usually via gdocs. Lat shift security guard might be the dream job for this sort of thing.

    I work in admin. Every now and then I’m able to release and burst stream of consciousness then stuff it in my drawer with paper clips. As a motormen in the marine corps., I was also able to get a little out sometimes

      Gotta have a day job before you can build a business, anon. If you mean the entertainment industry, you can’t work in a writers room unless you know somebody or have multiple successful projects on your resume. But maybe I’m a stupid fricking jackass who doesn’t understand how that shit works, and everything I’m saying is pure speculation. You tell me.

        i know many people (myself included) who started working as writers fresh outta school. most of my friends did freelance work for various online publications, pitching film and literary criticism for chump change on the side from whatever part time job. other friends became beat reporters. shocking amounts of downtime if you do it right.

        i was lucky to have some connections and got some editing and writing credits on books before becoming a ghostwriter. i want to kill myself all the time come join me.

            I just often wish I hadn’t tied something of spiritual/personal value to me to a results-based deadline-riddled grind. Also I spend a lot of time writing stuff that I’d never choose to write and a personal style is difficult to develop when much of my time is spent mimicking others/being purposefully amorphous as to be anyone.

            In general it can still be very fun and I like not having a 9-5 or working at a bar. I haven't quit yet, but have some irons in the fire/projects with friends that will hopefully be a step away from my life as a ghost.

          Journalism is a great job for a writer if you can actually get a job. Worst case scenario you have no time to write but are still honing your skills.

            Its actually not, though. Unless you mean specifically journalistic writing. It wont helo you become a fiction writer.
            Fiction/literature and journalism are two entirely different mediums. The nuances that lead to success in both fields dont lend readily to one another.
            Its like saying working as a chemist is a good way to become a biologist because they are both science.

    Get you a job that requires you to be on the clock for a full work day but only has you work when you are needed. That's my current job, right now. I'm a liaison between the agency that rents the building and the company that owns the building we work in. If anything needs repair or supplies need restocking, I can draft an email about it or fix it myself if it's within the scope of my duties. Otherwise, I'm writing, watching (productive) youtube, or brushing up on my foreign languages.

    Diana’s breast is charming, brothers,
    And Flora’s cheek, I quite agree
    But I prefer above these others
    The foot of sweet Terpsichore.
    It hints to probing, ardent glances
    Of rich rewards and peerless trances;
    Its token beauty stokes the fires,
    The willful swarm of hot desires.
    My dear Elvina, I adore it--
    Beneath the table barely seen,
    In springtime on the meadow’s green,
    In winter with the hearth before it,
    Upon the ballroom’s mirrored floor,
    Or perched on granite by the shore.

    I recollect the ocean rumbling:
    O who I envied then the waves--
    Those rushing tides in tumult tumbling
    To fall about her feet like slaves!
    I longed to join the waves in pressing
    Upon those feet these lips…caressing.
    No, never midst the fiercest blaze
    Of wildest youth’s most fervent days
    Was I so racked with yearning’s anguish:
    No maiden’s lips were equal bliss,
    No rosy cheek that I might kiss,
    Or sultry breast on which to languish.
    No never once did passion’s flood
    So rend my soul, so flame my blood.

    Another memory finds me ready:
    In cherished dreams I sometimes stand
    And hold the lucky stirrup steady,
    Then feel her foot within my hand!
    Once more imagination surges,
    Once more that touch ignites and urges
    The blood within this withered heart:
    Once more the love…once more the dart!
    But stop…Enough! My babbling lyre
    Has overpraised these haughty things:
    They’re hardly worth the songs one sings
    Or all the passions they inspire;
    Their charming words and glances sweet
    Are quite as faithless as their feet.

    Work in a company that is so large that what you do on a day to day basis matters little, as long as it is done before the deadline.

      My last job was like this. Wasn't that great. Sitting in an office with another person a few feet away, people walking by every 5 minutes, your screen pretty much exposed, open office policy.

      Red pill me on quiet quitting / fake remote jobs

        What’s there to red pill? I have a remote job. Most days I don’t even open my work laptop. I doubt anyone knows and if they do they don’t care. Show up to your meetings, answer your emails, and meet your deadlines and nobody cares what you do or do or when.

    Anybody has experience as a school teacher/writer? Is it possible to do?

    • 4 months ago

      Not really, at least not if you want to become a serious writer. Aside from summers you don’t get much downtime as a teacher. You definitely dont get time to work in reading/writing undistracted at work.

    I’ve got you covered OP. Years ago I would’ve said security, but that industry has changed so much, and now with cameras everywhere and a lot of companies introducing shit like detex wands where every hour you have to walk around with a scanner and touch it to a sensor in key areas, so they know you’re patrolling, I’d say the good old days of sleeping in your car as a night guard are coming to a close. That’s why I left anyway.

    So I’d recommend getting into real estate—property management with a focus on 55+ older apartments. I’ve been doing this and selling homes on the side for two years and all I have is time. I get a free apartment (you don’t have to be 55+ to be an onsite, live in manager) and although there’s a lot of paperwork and the occasional drama, I just have my girlfriend do all the paperwork for me. She’s a ladyboy from Thailand but she’s beyond passable. The boomers here somehow found out though, but as an employee that just made me all the more untouchable, because if they fire me I can pull the discrimination card. I read close to like 10 hours a day and write short stories I never intend to sell. It’s easy as shit to get one of these jobs too. Just look them up on job sites and you’ll see just how much demand there is. A lot of them require you to have a realtors license….which a fricking mongoloid could get. Just take an online class and then take the test. I prepare taxes too, which is another online class, as well as notarize documents. Saving up to buy a “chapel” so I can marry illegal immigrants to US citizens for $$, and then I’ll probably just live in the chapel. Trust me, it’s an easy life.
