Chekhov was a doctor. What other non-writing day jobs are great for writers?
Could being an infamous Cuban leader be one of them?
But if you happen to live in book-hating Turkey, that above option may not be feasible.
Or you could always go ahead and write that long-awaited sequel to Blade Runner.
Afterall, science fiction and other genre fiction tops many of the literary elite's favorites lists.
Though, you can never go wrong with copious amounts of Tolstoy and Nabokov.
Just take it from Henry Miller and "Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand."
Whatever you do, keep writing. You know how fast time flies.
