And it's definitely not the hours -- that tyrant keeps assigning them at random and without much notice.

I'm not sure what's best. Maybe it's that stage late in a work when it's still all yours, when the space you've carved and the characters you've enlivened are known only to you, when all their ticks and tocks are still exactly as they presented themselves to you as you created them, when the stories they're living are still just for you. That stage vanishes like a dream as soon as you submit the thing to someone who has purchased it. Because they will change it. Quite possibly for the better, but they will change it.(less)

In general I'll say this: Ask yourself which describes you better -- you want to be a writer or you have something you really, really want to write, something that nags at you and demands that you bring it to life. If it's the former, don't start till it's the latter.(less)
