Example text

If you want to succeed in this business, you have to strive for the highest standards. The cream floats to the top; the pulp settles at the bottom. A lot of writers swim somewhere in between, but if you strive to be the very best, and every bit of work you submit is the best you can make it, you will eventually be floating in the cream. If you’re really lucky, maybe you’ll be among the cherries. ❯ Julia London I once had a very insightful editor who said that one of the reasons writers are never satisfied with their work is because they’re always striving to do better.

If you try to write by summoning your muse, you will probably not write or ever finish a book. Muses can be elusive things, imaginary beings who carry all our ideas and best work locked in treasure boxes, which they delight in hiding from us. And no amount of magic will ever summon a muse. Writing muses are the biggest of fairy tales and pure fiction. Technique is what gets you writing. Understanding your craft is the true magic and your safety net. I know this to be true because for almost eighteen years I chased my muse, and she forever outran me—until I was forced to just tell my story without her.

You will not have more time. You have the same amount of time as the single mom or dad who just became a bestselling novelist. Each day you must set some time aside to write even if it is only enough to write one paragraph, or one page, or to sketch out your next idea for a chapter. By setting reasonable goals, you also develop a rhythm to your writing. You will be surprised that once you set a goal of say, one page a day, and you stick to that goal, it becomes part of your everyday schedule. Gaffney Anyone who has written a book knows that it’s impossible to write a book.
