Here’s what you need to know about being a writer. You have to get up. Because no matter how long it takes you, no matter how battle-weary you feel, no matter how many times you’ve cried this year, if you don’t get up, that’s game over.

I’m currently working on two manuscripts, and decided not to take on the challenge this year, but I want to share some of my tips I learned the hard way!
