Bad Answer: Well, that's not really relevant to my ability to do this job so i would rather not talk about it. Basically i took some time off and now i'm back, so. Good Answer: I took a year off after college to decompress and to get clear on what i wanted to do work wise. I didn't want to take just any job. I wanted to take a step back and evaluate my longer term career plans and that's really why i'm here today because i'm very clear on the fact that i wanna be a writer.
