Working and writing

No solutions in this post, just frustration. I’ve been reading about several of my favorite authors and how they do it. It seems that most of them were able at the start of their careers to dedicate themselves to writing full time. I’m not. I’ve got a full-time job. At least 8 hours a day. And they’re not easy hours. Lots of mental work, which means that the last thing I want to do when I get home is write.

So I don’t.

Not the way to get things done if I ever want to make a career out of this writing thing. Some days, I just want to chuck it all in and say I’m not as good as I think I am anyway, so I should just stick with managing projects. Other days, I’m more optimisitc, but it seems the bad days outnumber the good. There’s gotta be a way to deal with this, but I haven’t found it yet. Keep on trying, I suppose. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy, nose to the grindstone, every silver lining has a cloud…

    No, I’ve not heard of that one. I did a quick Google search, and it sounds similar to the Getting Things Done method, which I am doing good at employing at work, but not so much in personal life. 🙂
