Is anybody else in a situation similar to mine?

After more than twelve months of unemployment, I've finally gotten a "real life" (that means non-writing) job as a cab driver.

There are sizable chunks of time during my shift when I could be writing. Much of the time I'm sitting in a taxi line at the airport, and as soon as I can afford it I want to get a laptop so I can resume writing.

My writing's been at a standstill for several weeks because my power got turned off. Yes, I know I could have kept writing with pen and paper--I've done it in the past--but it just didn't happen this time. I've really had a lot on my mind.

But tomorrow I'll be moving into a little RV my family has bought for me, so I'll finally have electricity to plug my desktop computer into again, after going several months without. Things are looking much brighter and I expect I'll soon feel like writing again.

But the fact remains that I'll still be spending a lot of time in the cab. I'll be writing in fits and starts, between fares.

Does anyone else have a lifestyle where they have to try to write when they can? How's that been working out for you?

When I look at my day I can see there's usually a lot of time available. Theoretically I could get quite a bit of writing done. but I wonder if it's really going to work out that way?
