Oh yes. I very much relate to this, only I call it right brain/left
brain. My day job is very much left brain activity - I'm a
technical writer working with very technical concepts - and because
I'm in the software development field, the hours are insane. So
twelve hours a day I'm in serious left brain mode, and when I get
home and look at my jewelry work, which is what I would really
rather be doing, I can't get started. When the weekend rolls
around, it takes me until about ten o'clock on Sunday to finally get
into the groove. I end up spending about two really productive
hours a week on jewelry (which explains why I've completed exactly
one bracelet in the last 15 months).
I am deeply envious of those of you with studios of your own and the
time to dedicate to doing this.
On the other hand, I'm grateful to be able to pay the rent in the
San Francisco Bay Area.
Grateful, envious, and frustrated,
