MATT DENNY -wa- JEDI GONG
When I immerse myself in a writing project, it requires all of me, and it’s much more than a full-time job. A complex writing project (like one of the six novellas I’m presently orchestrating, a time-travel mystery) is a 24-7 job. But please understand that I’m not asking anyone to help me pay my rent, or utilities, or anything of that nature while I’m grinding out my next offering – because I don't have any rent or utilities! The fact is, I'm so dedicated to my dream of full-time writing that, in order to minimize expenses, I live in my car, a Chevy Trailblazer that I’ve almost paid off, which has just enough room in the back to stretch out at night. I'm sitting in the front passenger seat as I write this, using Walmart’s public Wi-Fi for internet access. I currently work full-time for $10 an hour at a call center here in Tucson, which pays for my food, vehicle expenses, gym membership (where I shower), and mailbox at the UPS Store. I’m living this extreme lifestyle because I figured that if I can radically minimize my expenses, then I can feasibly find part-time work, freeing as much time as possible for pursuing my dream. However, while this plan is great for my potential productivity, it will never solve the problem of paying for editing, publication, reviews, and marketing.
