As I'm in a film studio today shooting a TV commercial (and battling with no signal and pathetic emails) it's got me thinking about how our day jobs diverge from or affect our writing.
I work in what may seem a glamorous or fascinating industry (after film school I worked in feature films and TV dramas before moving into advertising), so I should be ideally placed to write stories set in that world, right?
Wrong! When I sit down to write, I want to escape my day job, not focus my thoughts back on it.
Do you take your day job home with you when you write, or do you escape to other careers and other worlds through your writing? Do you have a day job that involves writing, or are you a full time writer?
We Minxes would love to know! (Cos we're nosy that way). And if you're lucky, we'll even share a little more about ourselves.
[Please note, these pictures are from a previous shoot, not today's studio shoot, which isn't half as interesting!]
