I've done a lot of things, but the thing that was most helpful in terms of my writing themes was the six years I worked as a bartender/bouncer in one of the roughest bars in the area. I met people at their best, at their worst, and at all those picky areas between. In terms of the mechanics of writing: definitely the three years of copywriting for a radio station - getting as much as possible into thirty seconds without making it sound rushed.
