My Neglected Child

So at the end of the day, I don't have any Jon Snows running around, but I do have a science fiction project that I've wanted to do for years: the alien invasion scenario.  And in spite of my most careful time managing, I never seem to get around to it, which leaves me feeling all kinds of pissed off.

I've been working as hard as I can lately looking for clients to freelance for; even beginning to sacrifice my personal life for it.  I'm also looking for work wherever I can get it, and writing stories to send out to publications, so finding time for my passion project is always an issue.

I think I need to refigure my priorities, and maybe put all my energy and attention into work.  Because, really, what's the point of having a personal life when you can't even pay the bills?
