Ok I hope this doesn't sound too stupid....

What's a good job that will allow me to afford my own apartment yet give me enough time to continue to write articles and stories? I know the standard answer is "any job, you have to make time for writing on your own" but I've found myself just being so sapped from energy and inspiration that I end up coming home, falling asleep right away and waking up only in time to repeat the drudgery again.

I expect my problem is primarily that of drowning in a sea of first world privilege but I figure I can cast this out and see what I get at least.
