Sorry if a question like this has been posted, and if someone can point me in the direction of an existing thread that'd be swell.

Anyway: jobs!

I hate mine. It leaves me physically, mentally and emotionally drained. I get paid less than London living wage which I'm pretty sure isn't even legal. I work night shifts, late shifts, early shifts and even shittier shifts. But it's considered a 'desirable job', so they can get away with treating you like crap.

Anyway – this job doesn't particularly nurture one's creative side. Nor does it leave much time/ energy for actual writing. And, really, writing is literally all I want to do. I just want to write novels.

So, what do all of you do to fund your writing? What's your day job? What sort of a job will compliment writing? I'd like to see how other people manage it.
