This is a comment I made on a post at Book View Cafe, which has an interesting blog, mostly about writing.

Writing never made me much money; I’ve never made a living at it; but I’m happier when I write. I did nonprofit accounting for years. I like it. But who I am is tied up in writing and in the writing communities I belong to. If I were asked what I did with my life, I’d say I wrote and made friends — and spent a huge amount of time thinking about and talking about politics. The last has been frustrating. But the writing and the friends have been satisfying.
