Why is it that, when I wasn't working and had plenty of time to write, I felt creatively dead inside, but now that I have a full-time job and a total 3-hour commute each day, leaving me very little time to write, I now seem to have ideas coming out my eyeballs?

It's maddening!

Same here. Right now I have more free time than I know what to do with, but I bet the second I get a part-time job I'll start itching to write at the most inopportune times :)

I always used to tell myself that I couldn't wait to not have to work, so I could write all day. What did I do when I quit my old job to attend school, before I started classes?

RP. :P I could not discipline myself to sitting down and working the way I should have. Within two months of being off work, I was ready to beg for my job back, because I was terrified that I would never find a job again. I got into stupid Internet MLM things in hopes of earning money from home. I didn't write.

I'm now really dubious about the idea of retirement, because what if I laze off then, too? I was (and am) disappointed in myself that I wasted so much time while I was off work. There were days when I could not string two ideas together. And it didn't help that the only thing I could seem to write well during that time was RP. I mean,...role-playing games? Sheesh! So, so lame.

It's almost as if I have to have some kind of structure, something interesting happening in my life, for me to be able to write stories. Just sitting around at a computer all day doesn't feed my mind enough, I guess.
