TERRY GROSS: When you're doing a day job like cleaning, does it affect your, like, sense of your self, your identify? Are you able to say well, I'm a writer, I make my living cleaning. Or do you think oh gosh, I'm going to be cleaning the rest of my life. I really wanted to be a writer and I'm just stuck here cleaning. Some people it really gets to when they have a day job that doesn't fit with what it is that they really, really want to be doing.
