I was on the dole once. I loved it. It was only for a couple of years, when I was 20 or 21 and playing in a band.

There were many years when I was hand-to-mouth and didn't know how I was gonna make rent. I've done every job under the sun, from busing tables, temping, and working in factories to SAT prep and detailing cars. So to be able to make a living where all I do is write is absolutely liberating.
