Everyone else has said it better than I could.

Each one of us has to consider the things we want, which ones are accomplishable and which ones aren't, which ones are worth pursuing and which ones aren't, which are the most important to us.
Sucks that it's true but it is.

If you're really a writer, you won't *feel* like time spent writing is wasted. So examine yourself, decide what you really want, and set your priorities accordingly.
Good advice.

And remember there's no shame in admitting that writing just isn't for you. Writing is one of those deceptively easy things. People always make the mistake of thinking it's 'all you gotta do is' when there's a lot more to it, including the sitting down and doing it part, which does actually take away time from other things, tasks and people and is apparently the hardest part of all.
