I’m a writer, I’m supposed to lay in bed until 4pm, get up, scratch myself for an hour then drink and yell at my keyboard.
I got up at 10am. I wrote 3 scenes. I haven’t had a drink in days. And you know what: I’m more productive when I’m on a rough 9-5 schedule. So that’s that myth gone – you can’t escape the grind, no matter how weird your job.
