Writers write. Writers who get published complete work and submit that work to agents and editors. It’s how it works.
The way to write for publication is to commit to it. That means nothing–and no one–stands in the way of your writing goals.
For 2012, consider taking this pledge:
I ____________ (<-your name) do solemnly swear to devote _________ amount of time each day to Sacred Writing Time. That means no one and nothing disturbs this time, including myself.
I will work at ___________________ (<-location). When you, the undersigned, see me at this location, you will respect my Sacred Writing Time Pledge and not disturb me unless there is blood flowing from multiple places on someone’s body.
Signatures: __________________(<-yours) _________________________(<-your family’s)
