Office Jobs For writers

i just lernend the other day that many Dutch writers apparently kept working in regular office jobs all their life. There was kafkaesk suffering from the time taken away from writing by mondane tasks overy day life. 

Ferdinand Bordewijk apparently wrote his books on the train from The Hague to Rotterdam on his way to work. 

So, future writer: fear not to keep your day job. Something may still come of it.
