Brenda Hasiuk's Clash of Vocations

Years ago, when I was just starting out as a writer, I read a biography of Chekhov. He was a working MD, family man and story writer and struggled his entire life to find time for them all. Now, my day job does not involve aiding Russian villagers, and I’m not a genius, but turns out Chekhov and I do have this in common. Between working, family and writing, I am forever torn between vocations.
