I’ve been contributing to this blog on a semi-weekly basis for a few years now and I’m not sure if folks really know what I do for a living.
I’m a writer! (laughs maniacally) Nah, I wish I could do this full time as a career, but alas, I am only a lowly pharmacy manager. I lead a rag-tag, motley crew of some of the best technicians a boss could ask for. We spend the majority of our days trying to figure out what drug what insurance will pay for and what ridiculous code we have to put in the computer to get everything to work out right. The rest of the day is spent trying not to mess up someone’s prescription.
Strangely enough, it is at this hectic job that I get the best writing done. Whether it is the few moments in-between phone calls, or during a slower Saturday shift, I can usually bang out a few hundred words. Who knows, maybe years down the road things will work out where I could actually write professionally. Or, maybe…hold on, I gotta take this call.
First rule of being a writer: don’t give up your day job. Looking forward to reading your work. Keep at it!
