My most important advice: Get right with yourself. Take some time away from routines and familiar settings – days, weeks, even months if you can, and deeply contemplate what makes you believe you are a writer and want to be a professional. Play the game of pretending you already are a writer, and note what it feels like to do all that time-consuming, heavy lifting from the mind and the heart. Then pretend you are barred from being a writer, and note what it feels like to be too busy, or too bland, or too something else to ever complete a writing project. Marinate in these thoughts and feelings until you become convinced all the way down to your metaphysical toes that you’ve uncovered and touched the truth about your relationship to writing. Then whatever that truth is, live it.
