Yeah, write

I’m asked, can you make a living at writing, and of course you can.  But, it isn’t the only reason to write.  I read about a psychologist who said we should strike the verb “to be” from our language.  Instead of saying “I am a writer,” just say “I write.”  Every person spends more time sleeping than any other process, but you rarely hear someone say, “Yeah, I’m a sleeper.”   So, you write, and usually you do something else to support your habit.  It’s okay.

Remember, it's those other things in your life -- those things that help support your writing habit -- about which you probably want to write.  Don't forget to keep a journal.
