Writer’s Advice: this depends on which type of writer you are. If you don’t know trying some can help answer the question. If you just need it to be a job, that can influence your decision.
Personal Note: Trying to make a living writing for me, personally is difficult but not every writer has this problem. I even tried to make sure I would have some other good day job and just write on the side, but that ‘side’ was forced center stage circa 2004.
Cross-cultural: They say Germans are Krauts. This either means they are cabbages or herbs. If cabbages I think I now conclude that it is just that they are psychologically more tightly wrapped to themselves for their own safety from the winds of Northern Germany than those who are more loosely packed like the lettuce. I think maybe they are more like herbs but were just glad that someone learned at least one German word and did not bother to correct the English speaking people. Krauter tee is a cornerstone of German medicine..Or was in the old days, and so is as much ‘heritage’ as the heavy use of bricks and wind mills.
Southern Germany is mountainous and Northern Germany is flat. Strangely enough, Indiana is similar in that respect.
Good luck out there, all over the place where you read this.
