Don't get me wrong, there are many hard working secretaries out there. You just don't want to be that kind of secretary. You want to work at a place where they think they need a secretary, but they don't really need a secretary. Gyms, small businesses that aren't booking many clients, semi-retired dentists: these are the kind of low pressure environments where you should seek work. If you land a gig at a school or business that is actually doing business, you're never going to have time to work on your experimental poetry between phone calls.
