The topic today is ‘What I Would Do If I Couldn’t Be A Writer.’ Well, I wouldn’t want to go back to my previous job with the federal government. My career with them was informative, competitive and stressful. While I loved it, me and that kind of stress are no longer friends. There are lots of other things I figure I can do. I’ve always loved working with my hands so I could operate a craft making/supply business selling my products in a brick and mortar shop or on Etsy or whichever is most cost-effective. On my Twitter bio, I mention I’m a voracious reader so maybe working in a library would be a contender. I’ve always loved being surrounded by books.
But I think the work I’d most enjoy would be that of a researcher. ‘Cause is there really any such thing as too much research? Okay, maybe there is but only by a little bit, *pinching fingers together to show minuscule amount.* I’d love to work as a historical researcher delving into the what, when, where, why or how of past events. Or, since I’m always exploring all sides of my family’s past, I think being a genealogist researcher for FamilySearch.org or Ancestry.com would be cool.
What would you do if you couldn’t be a writer?

I didn’t hunk of historical researcher. That would be awesome! Genealogy is fun, too. I used to do that before I started writing (not professionally) but once I started writing, I didn’t have time for both.
A librarian is a good option. And bonus for a quiet work environment. My daughter and oldest son are both into history and my daughter enjoyed research and learning new things for her papers in college. She didn’t enjoy actually writing the papers LOL though.
Lovely to find you here on WordPress, Alicia! We seem to have much the same likes. If I couldn’t be a writer I would love to be a historical researcher, and shy of that, I’d love to work in a library. Excellent choices!
