We Just Don't Wanna Work

Two high school acquaintances met up 13 years after graduation and were surprised to find themselves in very similar situations, they both were unemployed. Both had held successful careers in fields that they were passionate about, however, beneath the layers of their identities that had been defined by their professions was something completely different. Eric had been doing the weather for a local television station and Nathan was working as a university administrator. While it was fulfilling work, secretly they both really wanted to be writers instead.

It wasn’t long before both Eric and Nathan began to talk about how they were going to make their dreams of being a successful writer come true and immediately began to brainstorm and share ideas. More interestingly though were their experiences of being unemployed in a difficult economy while having creative aspirations. Plus, they really didn’t want to have a “real” job anyway, which made the situation even more difficult.

So there they were, two guys wanting to spend their days writing the next best seller, one living in Sacramento, the other in San Francisco, both living on unemployment trying to figure out how to make this work. It was not to be easy and it was not to come quickly. Follow these guys through ups and downs as they navigate the world of professional writing while still trying to pay the rent. It’s often funny, sometimes depressing, and not always pretty, however, there has to be a light at the end of the tunnel for them at some point.
