WHAT MY DAY JOB TAUGHT ME ABOUT PUBLISHING
For most of us, a day job is a necessary nuisance (evil?) to a writing career. Paying bills, socking away the 401K and enjoying the benefits of employer-paid insurance are a necessity in this day and age. But what if that job – a constraint on our writing – was actually providing benefits that went beyond the financial?
In this workshop, Addison Fox will discuss the positive lessons she’s learned while juggling a day job with a writing career – time management, networking, character studies, story ideas and even battling deadline dementia – all while working toward that professional holy grail: writing full time.
Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader since childhood, she found it a natural transition to author when she discovered a desire to work on stories of her own. In between penning stories about strong-willed and exciting heroes and heroines, she’s spent twenty years working in marketing and advertising. Her day job – currently a senior lead on the marketing team for a major restaurant chain – has given her the opportunity to travel around the world. But no matter how far she travels, there’s nothing like coming home to her stories and the people who populate her imagination.
Addison lives in Dallas. You can find her at her home on the web at www.addisonfox.com or on Facebook (facebook.com/addisonfoxauthor) and Twitter (@addisonfox).
