“Working in an office. Pah! How am I supposed to be creative while working in an office?”
Most offices have a stationary cupboard fulls of essential art supplies. Who needs arts funding when you have an office stationary cupboard?
“But what if I'm a writer rather than a visual artist?”
That's even easier, you simply have to write your writing in an email and send it to yourself. This is one suggestion. You have to find a way to write subtly. 95% of my book, was written while working in a data entry position. The office is the best place for writers to write.
“But what would my manager think if s/he found out?”
Don't tell your manager. Writing is even more potent when it begins as an act of stealth. If you look busy in the office then you'll be seen as a good worker. Also, you won't get any extra work; which means you get more time to work on your writing. It gets even easier once you've written your first draft. By then you should have picked up all the necessary skills of evasion.
“I followed your advice and now I've been sacked.”
“Spare time? I thought you said you wrote instead of working?”
No, I didn't.
Yes, you did, you said that you did at work.
Yes, I said I did it at work not instead of work. You still need to complete your actual work duties.
If you want to try it again then my advice would be that once you get a new job then you work hard at the actual job for a month. Establish trust and get a feel of the job. Then, once you have management's trust, you can spend at least half an hour a day writing.
Because of the virus most of the jobs are working from home now.
That should make it even easier to write while working an office job. Unfortunately, there are no more stationary cupboards for visual artists to steal their art supplies from.
