working in the <fill in the blank> industry makes <fill in the blank> a job
Not only would my hobby pay MUCH worse than my real job,
but I love my hobby, I don't want to ruin it by making it a job.
My best friend has now published 5 horror novels. He won a Bram Stoker award for best new novel and was a finalist last year for best novel. Even with a tiny taste of success, I can assure you that his writing is still a hobby that he makes a little extra money on from time to time. He still has a full-time job to pay the bills. I think he would probably describe his writing as more of a second job that he really enjoys.
I'm lucky enough that I realized at a young age that working in the sports industry makes sports a job.
From scanning the Stoker Awards list on Wikipedia, would that be B.K. Ethridge? I'm a horror fan but am shamefully ill-read in the genre when it comes to just about anything from the last quarter-century or so.
redacted for my jib at Joey B. which is too much like shotting fish in a barrel.
Writing definitely became a second job for me this year and after two promotional tours I'm pretty spent in that department. I know we writers must "put ourselves out there," but after discovering and rediscovering how very little interest I have in why and what I write, I've decided any future tours will concentrate more on reviews
