I spend most of my time with family, and It's my biggest virtue. I study Biomedical science with a technical degree in medical laboratory technology. So I decided to work through my family, freelancing, while pursuing an academic lifestyle. Hanging out with my wife and family is serine, they are way more than just muses.
Writing as a career is a fucking relief to me. Working in such a social environment as a hospital, for example, can be exhausting. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy an excellent workforce. Sometimes effort doesn't equal pay and time. Mostly time, because time is money.
Time is precious, and in my field. Running the day before the day runs you is crucial.
