Saved everything, want 2b "Writer / Composer"

All advice appreciated folks . . .
Literally saved everything since age 22, to become full time writer / composer. (I'm now 35)
(Not pretending to be especially talented or anything, just very passionate!)

Have paid up real estate, worth about $700-800k. But NO home, NO savings, and NO pension whatsoever. NO wife, NO partner and NO children either. Hence my motivation in part, as I never clicked with anyone in my past (mega-corp) working life.

$300-400k more needed to ER. Any suggestions how to maximize savings / reduce tax, on pre-tax yearly income of $80k-$150k. (Note dollars locked away till 50-65 MIGHT cripple me!)
