Practicality vs. Passion

Dear reader, what am I to do?
Be practical? Or follow my passion?
I’ve done some self-discovery
(After all, it’s quite the fashion).

Oh, giving up the day job
Would be a dream come true
To write what I like (and get paid)
Well, that’s what I’d love to do!

Till a big break comes along
Sadly, a hobby this must stay
(I do need the reassurance
Of receiving regular pay!).

But who out there has done it?
Taken a leap, despite the doubt?
Feel free to share your wisdom
Tell me, how’s it working out?

Westeros or Writing?

I’ve done little writing of late
But you see, there is a reason
I’ve been re-watching Game of Thrones
Every episode, of every season.

I’m reliving all the scheming
The battles and beheadings
Secret deals, blood magic
And, of course, the weddings.

My re-watch has almost ended
Season Eight will soon be here
It’s sure to bring more drama
I may even shed a tear…

After the final credits have rolled
I’ll surely get back to writing
Although… I have yet to finish
Season Five of Vikings! 🤔
