Like many career writers, Jonathan Maberry spent years making little to no money from his craft. But he had a goal to become published and successful, and he stuck to it. No matter what, he wrote every day. Even if it was Christmas. Even if he was sick. Even if he didn’t want to and had nothing to say. What he didn’t do, however, was make writing a burden.
Wise advice. And simple too. Anything to get motivated. :-)
