Oh, and write. Don't forget the writing.
The problem is we do forget to write. It gets buried under all the other stuff. It gets shoved away and pushed aside, dropping to the bottom of our list of priorities.
There is only one answer: We need to remember to write. This might sound easy, but it means recalling our passion for the craft, practising discipline, and making the time to write. Our writing sessions don't have to go on for hours so long as we write.
There is nothing more important to our writing career than our writing.
Are you too busy being a writer to write? What holds you back? What helps you to remember?
