Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.

Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.

If you want your writing to be any good at all, you need to write every day. Once you start letting other things take priority over your writing, it will never get done. Don’t let anything or anyone dictate when you write.

Don’t let yourself get distracted by other things in life so that you don’t get any writing done.
