You can’t wake up one day and decide to be a writer. You must write, for years, and then decide if you will continue as a writer.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Maybe Definitely years to rewire our brains and fix our processes and priorities.
Be an example, not a warning.
PS. Yes, it’s hard as hell, and takes forever. The time and the struggle will pass anyway. So why not do it?
