Find a patron/admirer/spouse/easy-mark who'll support you and then all is well.

I've taken a different route. I've (just about) always done just what I want to earn my vegetables. Like a lifetime of being paid to play for a living. Nonetheless, it doesn't mean I've not worked like a dog for extended periods. Possibly, that's part of the charm:   even working super-hard was rewarded with having done something I like. Other times, I've just played around and then "sold them" what I did just for recreation. Actually, some of the best stuff.

It's a different type of freedom - and someone else's checkbook (i.e., not self employed).   the trick is to know exactly what will make you feel free. Bill collectors at the door usually isn't part of that.
