I take one day off per week to write and on that day, that's all I do for eight hours. I write short stories, novels, histories and plays. I don't answer the phone, I don't go out, I don't leave my desk. I do that because it's so, so, so easy not to write and writing is what I wan to do and we have to begin doing what we love as soon as possible. We don't live in eternity but our ideas can, what we write can live forever. And if I don't write all I have are ideas about what to write....outlines, concepts, notions...and being a writer isn't about ideas, being a writer is about making ideas happen, it is about bringing the to life.
