I have the same dilemma. At the same time, I am also undertaking two in real life courses, one in playwriting and the other in screen writing (and holding down that day job). Is there a way of bringing them all together? Will I at least develop the discipline of a daily writing schedule? Do I finish a play/adapted to a novel/promoted on a blogging platform?
I have no answers. But I will check back in for the sage advice of Medium readers/writers.
