“I’ve got to be writing. I have a few ways to make sure I can carve out time. Part One: Neglect everything else” -David Mitchell (quoted in The Atlantic.)
Like most writers, I don’t write enough. I have a goal to write one hour every day. I have met that goal two days out of the past fourteen and I’m beating myself up about it.
How NOT to be a writer:
Have other, very involved interests.
Commit to other activities.
How to be a writer:
Talk over your ideas with others.
Think about your plot problems while your hands are busy.
And then, actually write.
I gotta work on that last one.by
