I'm having a similar issue. While I was unemployed for 15 months, my writing was consistently inconsistent where I would write, but not religiously every day. But, when I did write, the words flowed freely. Now that I am working fulltime again, it's hard to carve out time. When I write at night, it's hard to turn my brain off as I try to fall asleep.

My biggest challenge right now is that I've determined my last draft is all backstory and it's time to start from square one again. Procrastination has set in; however, I do find myself handwriting new scenes. Recently I determined that I will approach my story and characters from a different direction. Carving out time will still be a challenge, but I'm looking forward to it...whether it be with pen and paper or a keyboard.
