Writing, like most hobbies and habits, requires discipline. It means sacrifice. It means giving up something else in order to make time for the act of writing.
To complicate matters, we writers are often a sensitive lot--though sometimes you'd never guess. Our egos are easily bruised, we're often embarrassed to admit we're writers, and the innocent question "what do you write about?" is met with fear and trembling.
Writer, editor, literary fiction lover, classic book lover, warrior of God, mother of two, insatiably curious learner, too much a thinker, debater, NaNoWriMo-er, constant editor, runner, horse racing lover, classic movie lover, amateur photographer... (None of the above in any particular order.)
