After I finished my first novel and started to get in the greased grooves, I was surprised at how many things writing is NOT.
- IT IS...
- Not winning the Lotto
- Not about Inspiration
- Not due to Luck
- Not Magic
- Not a single magnum opus
- Not about the Idea
- Not waiting for the Muse
It's work, it's discipline, it's skill, it's practice. It's hard work. It's FUN!
I am not saying that inspiration is not going to happen. I'm not saying you wouldn't enjoy luck or have a great idea. What I am saying is, the odds are way better for all those things if you are working hard at the time.
