I’ve always had a strong work ethic and treat writing like a job. I must write something every day, even if it’s substandard. (I can always throw it away later.) The great thing about writing is it’s very rewarding even if I don’t sell much. There’s a reward in seeing your words in glorious typeface, bound in a glossy cover and having people come up to you who’ve actually read your words and ask for your autograph.
