After illness Bulgakov abandoned his career as a doctor for that of a writer. In his autobiography, he recalled how he started writing: “Once in 1919 when I was traveling at night by train I wrote a short story. In the town where the train stopped, I took the story to the publisher of the newspaper who published the story”.[10] Though his first fiction efforts were made in Kiev, he only decided to leave medicine to pursue his love of literature in 1919. His first book was an almanac of feuilletons called Future Perspectives, written and published the same year. In December 1919 Bulgakov moved to Vladikavkaz. He wrote and saw his first two plays, Self Defence and The Turbin Brothers, being produced for the city theater stage with great success

Stalin gave him permission to continue working at the Art Theater; on 10 May 1930,[9] he re-joined the theater, as stage director’s assistant. Later he adapted Gogol‘s Dead Souls for stage.
