Forgive me if this question is too personal, but as I read about your
singleminded involvement with producing/writing/overseeing Babylon 5, your
hours on the nets, and your few hours of sleep, I wonder how you keep your

Is your wife busy with her own projects? Do you set aside time for each
other? Do you share with her any of your creative process?

Y'know, it ain't often that a question stops me and leaves me staring at
the screen for ten minutes trying to decide what the hell to say....

Everything in my life is subsumed into the work.  Especially for B5.  You
must understand, this isn't just a show for me, isn't just a job, some
bucks.  This show means almost everything to me right now.  My personal
life, my health, my relationships, everything comes second to the work.  

And someday, there will be a reckoning for that. 

I'll likely revisit this subject at some point in the future...but not
