I work as an overnight convience store clerk. It's a quiet store, so I get a good 2-3 hours of writing done every shift. Sneak off to the back office around midnight with my laptop and work on shows till 3:00. It's funny sometimes, I'll often work out scenes out loud while doing shift duties, and occasionally a customer will sneak in without me hearing the doorbell. Then I have to pretend that they didn't just catch me talking to myself like a crazy person.

So if someone asks me, "What do you do?" I don't tell them I'm an office worker. I tell them I'm a playwright and then I watch the quizzical look as they mentally accesses the data.

Yeah - tell me about it. I'll be behind the counter, in my uniform, and a customer will ask me, "So what did you do this weekend?".

Now in my head I'm thinking: "I held a dramatic reading for a full-length I'm developing."

Out loud I say: "Um... went to the bar with some friends, sang karaoke".
