You must have noticed the title of this post. That pretty much sums it up for me. Now that I have a full time job, I can only write /edit / blog / tweet at night or on weekends. Sure, I can schedule the blog and tweet posts, but to interact, it mostly has to be at night. Sometimes I can sneak in during the day, but it's sporadic. I belong to a couple of writer groups that I struggle to keep up with. I know I'm lagging and not interacting enough. So many times I get to the party late and struggle to catch up with what's going on.
I've thought about quitting everything. When you get right down to it, all the pressure comes from myself. Nobody but me. I don't have to write / edit / blog / tweet or belong to writer groups. But I love it and want to stay involved with other writers as much as I can.
And so I'm going to keep hobbling along until someone takes away my Writer's Card and kicks me out of The Club.
Thanks for listening!
