97% of writers can't make a living from writing. That's a flaw in our culture, not a shibboleth proving that the lucky few are Real Writers.

Do you consider yourself to be a good writer? Great! Keep writing.
Do you consider yourself to be a poor writer? Hey, me too! Keep writing.
YOUR GOAL TODAY IS ONE SENTENCE.
If you can write more than that, that’s AMAZING, but if you hit your goal then you’ve hit your goal and you’re on the right track and deserve accolades for simply opening your word processor.
Don’t believe in yourself? Believe in me, who believes in you!
Did you know that if you write, then you are a writer? Pretty great, isn’t it?
On the flipside, though, if you do not write then you are not a writer.
Don’t be an “aspiring writer”. Just be a writer. Yes yes, I know, writing is a pain. It never stops being a bit of a pain. But I’m certain that you can manage a few sentences today. Even if no one else believes in you, I totally do!
