Many authors and poets turn to technical writing or marketing or advertising for their day jobs. Famous examples include John Sladek, one of the most interesting science fiction authors of recent times, who made much of his living as a tech writer. He published a guide to XYWrite back in the day. Richard Hugo worked for Boeing for a while, where much of what he did was draft documents.

Some "creative writers" feel that they are written out by the end of the day and can't easily turn to their own work; others seem to do fine.
