The question of the day is Work? Optional. Is work ever optional? I am totally in love with writing. If work were optional (100 million lotto win), I would write. Authors still have to work at improving their craft and building their audience. Work is not optional in my world because all the things I love the most require work. Instead of work optional, I would say if money was optional, I would write, watch anime with my boys, stalk my husband, and turn the world into my naughty playground. Work is always an option as long as it is something I love.
