If you work by the hour at a “job”, people generally leave you alone.
Be a writer and your time is comical and there is no thought to infringe upon it.
I guess maybe I should tell people I got a job at Lowe’s. Or McDonald’s.
Unless you have a boss, your “work” is a hobby, an elective, extracurricular.
I apologize to everyone ahead of time. I’m going to be a little bitch at times. I have work to do.
