I just figured out something ridiculously important

January 1st, 2009 (09:12 pm)

and need to record it for posterity, and for when I can't remember it next time.

Writing is a job. It's a part-time job, for right now, and it's not a job I am currently getting paid for, but it's a job. Because if it's a job, it's something I have to do even when I don't want to. It's important, and I don't get to slack off from it. I have to take it seriously, and I have to sit down and write every day. Writing being a job doesn't mean that it's not creative, or not . . . I don't know the word I need here, and it's not important.

This is really, really good.

You may now return to your life. And Happy New Year!

Thanks for the pep talk. I relate. Funny enough, I read this on break from a submitting binge.
