Half and half
Trying to figure out how to be a full-time writer while being a full-time something else. (While not earning full-time pay at either.) My books are in a perpetual holding pattern and characters are saying "Hel -- LLOO!" and tapping their feet at me. Taking the next quarter off to write regardless of the artist residencies; it's temporary solution. Part of it's probably that I'm trying to figure out a new career, the rhythm, the downtime. I'm getting better at writing a page here and a page there but sometimes days and now weeks go by and not a word.
