Passion or love doesn’t have to be part of the work/job equation. The value of
work is that you get paid to do it, not that you’d do it even if you didn’t get
paid. It even bothers a lot of other writers that my main reason for being a
writer is that I get paid to write. Sure I like it, but I don’t like it more
than my other hobbies. Writing can be difficult, exhausting when it’s done well,
and leaves you a little beaten up (or at least it does to me).
