When your day job involves writing, it is very, very difficult to break away from it so that you can write non-work-related stuff.
This is especially frustrating when the non-work-related stuff is what you’d rather be doing with your life, and you can’t hope to make that change-over until you get something finished.
Trying to get a novel done, while my days are filled with the writing, editing, layout, and planning of RPG material is really fucking difficult.
I know that it sounds ridiculous to be complaining….after all, I’m still writing for a living, right? I can’t explain it any better than to say it this way: It feels like my entire life is being lived in a state of “Almost There.”
