IT DOES MATTER

I have tried to think of all the things that you must have or do when you are a writer. Of course talent is at the top of my list, but in truth, either you are a writer or you're not. A writer is someone who actually writes and no writing book in the world can make you a writer. They can give you tips or even suggest a few exercises, but in the end of the day you are the one that has to go sit on your butt and get things done.

What I think is the thing that writers need the most in their lives, or their careers, is basically people that support your craft and who believe in you. If someone does not increase the quality of your life, or is so negative that they deter you from what it is that you love to do, then unfortunately, it is time to cut them loose. It is cruel, but why hang out with people that make you feel bad about yourself or your craft?
