Hey PassRush! Since I have had the pleasure of meeting you I am very intereted in your decsion. My advice is this:
Chase your dreams. The only reason you are looking at the NO job is for the money. It is hard, brutal, and demanding work. Your dream is to be a writer and you seem to have a knack for it. The money is not so huge that it is life changing. I think you should stay here, work on finding a job you like better and that pays a little more, and then chase your heart and your dreams by staying with your girlfriend and writing more.
