When I put off my writing with the excuse, “I’m too busy, I’ll write twice as much tomorrow” I heap rocks onto my already growing pile of overwhelm.

If you dream of writing a book or you dream of writing to earn a living, the very best advice I can offer is that you build your daily writing habit.
When you live in personal integrity with your writing life, all of those worries fall away because you’re doing what you said you would do, when you said you would do it, whether you feel like it or not.
Diligence, it’s been said, is the mother of good luck. Luck is largely the result of your work ethic.
