The Difference Between Someone Who Wants To Write And Someone Who Does Write

That is the difference between someone who WANTS to write, and someone who DOES write. The person who FINDS the time is the one who is going to become a writer. The person who doesn’t, won’t. You have to decide what’s important to you.

It Is Always More Fun To Start A New Story

It is always more fun to start a new story than it is to work on the one you’ve been working on for months… Every writer feels this way. Just power through it, and remember that if you write a page a day—just ONE page—in three months you’ll have a hundred page story. And in six months you’ll have a two hundred page story. That’s almost a whole book. So don’t think about it like: “Oh my gosh, I have to write two hundred pages.” Think of it like, “Today, I have to write a page.” Trust me. It works.

Write The Kind Of Story You Would Like To Read

Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.

Draw A Picture Or Write A Story

It was also my mother who taught me never to be bored. She was a writer and an artist, and when I had nothing to do as a kid she would always hand me a pen and paper and tell me to draw a picture or write a story.
