Posted slayemin on Today, 02:36 AM

My girlfriend asked me today if I'm behind schedule on my game. I didn't really want to answer her, but she pointed out that I was planning on hiring an artist to work with me in December.

Alright, I've really been struggling.

I really need to focus and work a lot harder on my game. I started measuring my exact expenditures of time on a day to day basis and have found that I average about 3 hours of real work per day. It's no wonder my game is taking so long. What's the problem with me?

First off, my sleep schedule is whacked. Today I wo...
