Writing on the side

The thing about being a writer is that few people are actually able to do it from the start. It would have been great to become a full time fiction writer right out of college, but even in the world of eBooks and Kindles, it's not that easy.

Most of us started out simply writing on the side when we have time. I once read that Stephen King writes for about two hours a day and I envy the King, but I have to work a full time job, various freelance writing projects for cash and write fiction on the few seconds I have on the weekends or late at night.
