Today, during a job interview, I was asked for 2 short term goals, and a long term goal.
Get a job, hire an editor, get an agent, become best-selling author with a fame to rival Stephen King's. Or, get a job, hire an editor, self-publish and gain fame to rival some self-pubbed author.
Like heck I was going to say that.
Get a job, build up credit, possibly go back to school is what I said. I had no idea. My life's my writing. Everything else is....everything else.
"I don't know. I kinda try to take it one day at a time. Why do you think I applied to fast food places?"
That would've gone over well. Now, that I've had my adult moment of applying for a job, I'm going to watch Whisper of the Heart and re-capture my misspent MG years.
What will you bring to this job? "My awesome sense of humor." That would've gone over even better.
