I enjoy many things about being a writer. However, one thing I really enjoy is the commute. When I taught in the Yupik Eskimo village of Eek, the commute from my apartment to the school was 34 steps. Such a short commute was helpful on days the temperature was -40, but now my travel time is shorter, six steps from my bedroom to my office chair—and the temperature is much more pleasant.
The other thing I enjoy is the freedom. I devote the morning hours of the workweek to writing and I rarely allow any deviation from that schedule, but I set up that schedule and, if necessary, can adjust and shift it. Having that freedom every day is fantastic.
