Balancing Day Job and Writing

As I continue to write I find it hard to pull myself away from my current work in progress to work on my day job. I've always told my friends that working on my writing is much more enjoyable than working on code. Creating a world with its respective characters is much more fulfilling than analyzing a coding project and setting it into motion. It's not as if I don't like web design or programming anymore, it's just that those things may not be where my true passion lies.

I think the main problem lies in that both activities involve long hours in front of the computer. After a while my eyes go loco and an eye strain headache attacks like a circling vulture.

I remember the days in college where I could sit for 10 plus hours in front of the computer and not blink. I used to play StarCraft for hours and hours. Those days are long gone. (And replaced by work, writing, and kids) Now I have to enforce breaks to make sure I can work productively throughout the day. There are various applications out there that track computer time. I may need to use them again.
