and I had what seems like a flash of inspiration, to define productivity as work/art and aim at 8 productive hours per day. Deadlines will doubtless continue to define which takes precedence at any given moment, as well as that annoying need to eat and finance my art habit, but hopefully this will take away the guilt about doing art and help me define it to myself as a serious pursuit.
