What my current schedule looks like: · 2:57pm May 11th

So my typical day basically looks like this:

I get up at around 9-9:30 am. Sometimes a bit earlier. I'm not that much of a morning person, so slow and steady wins the race for me here.

I shower, get my lunch made, get breakfast, and eat breakfast. By then it's just about time to leave for work around 11am. I bike 9 miles to my job (would love a car, but can't afford one and I'm hearing prices are skyrocketing right now) (Also sadly the buss doesn't really run when I need it to)

Get to work around noon. Sometimes I don't have to come in till 1pm, so a bit extra time, but those days are random and rare right now.

I work till about 8:30/9PM. Bike another 9 miles back home. The trip usually takes me about an hour.

I get home anywhere from 9:30 to 10pm at night. By then I'm exhausted and can barely watch tv, let alone do any real work.

Wednesday nights when I get home, my roommate and I are trying to play through some RPGs and on the first of the month, I stream a bad movie, which I plan to take the footage of us discussing said movie afterward and put it on youtube.

Thursday I'm off. Usually the only time I get to play any of my games. I bought RE8 Saturday. I've had enough time to play one hour.

Thursday NIGHT I do my anime stream. Where my roomies and I stream four episodes of an anime, then four episodes of another anime. I have a bit of time after that to work on random stuff.

Saturday I'm off, but I have the Saturday Morning Cartoon stream we do, then we go shopping. Then late night it's gaming stream.

So basically: Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. I work noon or one to nine pm.

Wednesday I do that AND have RPG gaming afterward.

Thursday I try to actually bleeping relax and play some games or catch up on anime.

Saturday I'm off work, but I don't exactly have the day "OFF"

So... yeah sadly I think the only reason we got two chapters of I -AM- My teenage daughter was because I basically had to isolate for 2 weeks. My roommate got covid, so I had to isolate with them. I never got it myself.

I had hoped to do more updates this year, but yeah. This is my work load. I try to get to writing when I can, but this is basically why it always takes forever.

Hate to say it, but unless I somehow find a way to work from home, this likely won't change anytime soon. And I work retail, so yeah. That's not happening.

Write a few words each break you have at work, trust me, it makes a big difference over the course of a week

Um... I work retail. In a deli. Only break I get is my 30 for a lunch. I guess you mean for me to write on my phone, but yeah that's not going to work.

Sorry, didn't mean my reply to be mean spirited or anything. I admit it was likely too blunt, but I wanted to get across that sadly that's not an option.

I don't have any solutions for your schedule quandaries. So I'll just say that I enjoy the stories, but you shouldn't add any stress to your life for us, the audience. Write when you feel like you'll enjoy it.

Yeah I do like to write, and I do when I can, but the sad fact is if it feels like work I won't be able to do it. I need my time to relax and unwind, and a lot of the time, a game or a movie/show is the best way for me.

I made this blog post because I do really want to deliver the stories. I want to finish them and am glad at least a few people enjoy them, but yeah. I see other's stories stop cold. Either from lack of interest or time, and I do feel bad mine have to be among those, but as you said. I can't go adding stress or more work to my plate. So... when we're lucky and I get time every now and then and the desire. I write. It's a shame it takes so long, but it's about the best I can do. :/
