I can relate. Yes, it is true that I am an artist and writer, but, I also work a regular job to pay the bills. I have worked labor-intense blue collar jobs all my life from fighting forest fires to farm work, warehouses and production type work. The last few years I have worked for a city park, but, now I am back to production with a compressed work week working 12 hour days on the weekend. My weekend is during the middle of the week. Don’t give up on what you love to do. I haven’t, although I haven’t written anything for awhile- it can be taxing having a regular job and I understand not having the energy or time to write.
