I remember when I was young and unpublished. I was happy with the first part of that situation but not the second, so I was always writing and always looking for a shortcut to success.
What I found is that there is none. You write, day in and day out, whether you feel like it or not. Eventually, if you have the potential, you become good enough to be published.
That obligation, to write whether you want to or not, never goes away.
Case in point: I really don't feel like writing today. And I really, really, really don't feel like writing a blog post. But here I am. Because that's what it takes.
Chop wood, carry water. That's all the writing advice you'll ever need.
Above: My office. It's astonishing how much clutter I'm not showing you.
