Recent Reading - Career Building Through Fan Fiction Writing by Miriam Segall|
TTL says "grrrrrr" to books that tell you how to make profit from things you do for passion.
Career building through community choir!
Career building through visiting your grandma in the old age home!
I guess my point is not that you can't or shouldn't go from a hobby to a career, but these books seem to imply that you should want that or need to justify your time somehow. Maybe I do protest too much.

LOL on the grandma one. Well, very little of it was about career building, really, if that makes you feel better. I think, though, that career books are popular with kids because they are thinking about what they'll do for a living, and it makes sense that they'd want to do something related to the things they enjoy. Which is why so many kids plan on being rock stars or making movies or professional athletes.
