Writer's Block: Born to do it

What is your idea of the perfect job? Do you think you'll ever get it?

Wow. Hard question. I would love to be able to make money by doing the things I am capable of doing and enjoy doing. Wouldn't we all. The list of things I am capable of and enjoy doing is so varied and eclectic I doubt such a job could ever exist. I wish that I could do these things and make money of them for myself without there being a "job" per se, but I do not have the marketing and planning skills needed to even post stuff on ebay/etsy/folksy. Needing to be able to nap whenever my body/brain decides that it needs to is another constraint to there ever being a "job" out there that I would be able to do. Deadlines stress me out and make me ill. Phones freak me out and ditto. There is no wonder, to be honest, I am on long term incapacity benefit and disability living allowance (the UK equivalent of the US "disability" from what I can gather). So, yeah. I have skills and ambition but the body/brain is not willing and no employer would ever employ me to do any of the things I can do, working from home with 100% flexible hours and no requirement to use the phone. It is just, sadly, not happening.
