I don't think I am that different from many of you. For one reason or another you decided to dive in. That in itself takes a lot of courage, especially when given the raisedeyebrow. And to see it through to the end - an extaordinary amount of determination. It can be easy to give up. There will be those days when you just don't feel like it. Don't be discouraged. Sometimes it's good to take a break from it anyway.
I went to a writers workshop a few months ago and I was a little upset with one of the speakers. He was harping on what he says he had heard from writers all too frequently - "I don't have time to write". I know for a fact that he is a full time writer, that is what he does for a living, and from the number of books he has out there, he must be good at it. He had forgotten that many of us have day jobs that pay the bills. His contention was that a writer can always find time to write - turn off the TV, you've always got time for the family later(he didn't have kids), mow the lawn next week, the house will take care of itself, etc. Okay, I made up some of those. My point is don't let another part of your life suffer, so you can get those words on paper. Sure, most of us want some degree of success as writers and it does take a lot of work, but try to accomplish a nice balance.
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.
