For my January article in Full Stop I wrote about writers and day jobs with a little intro about T.S. Eliot and his years working as a clerk at Lloyd’s bank in London.
I couldn’t have imagined the interest that the article generated across the Internet over the last week and a half. There are clearly a lot of writers who work full-time and are conflicted about what this does to their creative work.
Here is a sampling of the sites that wrote about and linked to the essay:
- The Paris Review Daily linked to it (this put a smile on my face)
- Poetry Foundation blogged about the piece
- The Millions included it in their “curiosities”
