I'm with HRoth. I define "work" as something that you HAVE to do, whether you want to or not. I had to work today, and I will be all weekend. That's definitely work. If I didn't have to do that, I sure wouldn't. If I didn't have to work, I'd have no problem finding things to do, but I could pick and choose what I do each day. Why would you choose to work over total freedom? I spent the first part of my life taking things I loved and trying to make money from them, which inevitably ruined those things for me and made them miserable. Because lets face it... If it's a great thing to do, there's going to be a million people trying to do it. My advice to anyone on that is... Do the easiest thing that makes the most money, and gives you the most freedom. Then take that money and do the things you really like. The little secret that "successful" artists never mention, is that many of them never needed money in the first place.
