Most of us do not have the luxury to stay home and write full-time as a career. We have other responsibilities: school, kids, spouses or significant others, friends, family, chores, and even just life. Writing can often fall to the side, to be treated as some forgotten hobby. I think this is normal. Sometimes we have more time, and other times less.
So how do we stay motivated? For me, I try to remind myself that I’m not just writing for enjoyment, this isn’t just a hobby to me. I am hoping to one day turn writing into a full-time career (as I know many of us are). Therefore, I try to look at writing as less of a hobby and more as a job, I really, really love.
How do you stay motivated? How do you stay focused?
