I never had a job :|
Not even a paper round?!

What’s a paper round? :)

I’ve started working on Envato & various freelance gigs from high school, continued working through college and now i’m full time here. Don’t take too much freelance either..

You’re lucky, good place in good time. :-)

When did you decide to quit your job and become a full time author? And how do you deal with relatives asking, “when do you plan to find a real job?”

I was working a full-time job, doing support for an elite author and producing my own items as well.

I decided to quit when I knew for definite that I had my wage covered, not a second before. When I was happy that I had enough income from Envato I made the move :)

As for relatives asking when I’ll get a proper job, they all know how hard I work, and the income I bring in for my family, no-one has ever asked me this question because of that :)
