No, I'm not talking about the Indie Gamer Forums, I'm talking about me. I fell into a new relationship a couple months ago and holy cow where did the time go? Things are getting a bit serious, but we're trying to pace ourselves, which is not all that hard when it's a long-distance relationship. (Or sometimes it's harder because the distance makes you want to speed things up.) We spend an inordinate amount of time on the phone, and I've signed up for frequent flier miles. This relationship comes hot on the heels of full time employment; my bank account went dry six months ago, and I went into the phase of my business plan entitled "S**t! I'm outta money!" which meant I needed a job. I was just getting into the swing of this new job and thinking about how to manage my reduced Gearhand time when I met Melissa. Well, it was a setup, at a wedding, by the groom. But anyhow, the point of this ramble is: I have no free time! My plan for full-time employment was work for 2 years, until the coffers replenished and I could quit and return to Gearhand full-time again. But in the meantime, I was to work on a couple other games and ports. Now I have no idea what the plan is, I may be spending a week of the month in another state now that I've worked out a tentative telecomutting agreement with my current employer. I may be moving to Atlanta outright. Who knows? How do you manage so many life changes and still get work done on your business? I don't want a "side business" -- a side business gets pushed to the side. A business you make time for.
