Who Quits a Day Job?

Sandy Antunes has an excellent column up on RPG.net today, in which he reveals the results of an informal survey of RPG designers and developers. The question he put to them was: “What is your day job?”

The results are not particularly scientific, which Sandy (whose day jobs include astrophysicist and stay-at-home dad) freely admits, but they’re fun. I didn’t take part in the survey because writing books and designing games is my day job, but I enjoy seeing how others in the field approach their work.

  1. There was an interesting piece on NPR a few months ago about “slashes” talking about how much more common they’ve become. Like myself, Artist/Webslinger/Writer. This trend combined with the rise of what’s called the “gig economy”, is changing the idea of “career” in a significant way. Not just in our field, but across the board. One survey says as many as a third of the workforce is a freelancer, contractor or consultant.
