But I strongly believe that there is a writer in all of us if we set our minds to it. Just a couple hundred words a day even would get you there eventually. Think of it as the reverse of giving up smoking. Instead of taking one less a day, you could write one more a day instead! Even better - you don't have to buy patches. Just think of the money you could save.
So next time your sitting there watching TV after 7pm remember this. That book you were meaning to write since you were seven doesn't write itself. Just a couple words a day my friend, just a couple words a day.
