A Writer Makes The Time To Write

A writer never finds the time to write. A writer makes it. If you don’t have the drive, the discipline, and the desire, then you can have all the talent in the world, and you aren’t going to finish a book.
And each book has to receive your best effort every single time. No slacking.
