Writing Untamed in November. Why I love NaNoWriMo!
I married a college student who sang in school groups and acted in plays and had music playing over the stereo every minute that he was home. More than 20 years teaching music and drama has turned him into a man who values silence, rarely turns on music except for work and hasn't auditioned for a play in years. He still loves music and drama but it is work.
The father of one of our son's friends, loved his hobby of woodworking, and turned his garage into a cabinet making shop. Now he is in high demand, and under a deadline, and making what the person writing the check decides he will make. He makes wine on the side and has fun gathering wild berries and apples from abandoned orchards. I overheard someone suggest that he could sell his wines. He cussed the very idea! "I already turned one hobby into a job! This I do for me!"
