I have this war going on inside me between the logical side of me and the creative side of me. I really want to develop my writing and art into something more than hobbies, but I feel like I'm wasting time when doing either. I feel like I should be doing something more productive, like cleaning house or working in the yard. Writing and art are too much fun, therefore they can't be a practical use of time. I don't believe that, but it is all I hear running through my head everytime I sit down to write or paint.
