&gt; My take on the whole &#34;Cult of Long Hours&#34;
&gt; is that it is just another manifestation of our
&gt; victim culture. The people who are bragging
&gt; their long hours are really saying, &#34;Look at
&gt; much I suffer for my job. Woe is me. Respect me

&gt; because I am so overworked.&#34;

Some people actually enjoy working a more open-ended
schedule where they will gleefully put in 80+ hours a
week. I work at least that, but I love my work and I
have control over my life. So working long hours is
not anything to be proud of, its just the way things
are. I don't even really know how much I work each

Generally, people who like what they do, don't have a
problem doing it - a lot. A real writer who truly
loves to write is always writing. Its something they
just do as a matter of being. Its the people who must
force themselves to work that generally don't want to
actually work.
