Believe it or not, a few of my characters actually have day jobs to support themselves. Megan, for example, is officially a historian, which is my in-universe explanation for how I can write stories about all my other characters. She's a time-traveler, too, apparently, but that's a secret. Ciara's a farrier because I've always thought it would be a neat job to have, and because she just has an affinity for horses. Deirdre's a soldier, because everyone gets to have one standard fantasy hero in their collection, right? Or maybe two, now that I have Bleu, who's a soldier, too. I keep thinking that it might be kind of fun to show some of them actually doing their jobs for a change, too. Though, except for Deirdre and maybe Jessamine, that might not make for particularly exciting art. Then again, even my girls can't have sex all the time. Not even Jessamine.
But I was wondering, what do your characters do for a living? Do they have the same job you do, or do they do something far more glamorous? Far less glamorous? Or, if they don't have a job, what do you imagine they'd enjoy doing?
