Keep Writing


Via pinterest

I was asked to give advice for “aspiring writers” today and even though one of the worst things I can say is “write like it’s a job” I’m going to say it.

If you want to do this writing thing, and more of it, eventually you’ll have to stop thinking that it’s something you do “when you have time” or “when you’re inspired.” Some people like to think that it’s who they are, but I like to think of it as what I do. 
Because trust me, there are so many reasons to stop doing this. No time, no ideas, no readers, no publisher, no bottom line. People have stopped writing, and stopped being writers, because of this and more. And that’s fine, but when you think of this as the thing you do, then you never really stop.
