Ann Chamberlin Keeps me sane. Sort of.

Yes, find something else. Stock car racing. Tight rope walking. Ditch digging in the rain. Nude modeling. Writing has aspects of all of these.
My second piece of advice I heard from someone else: if you're meant to be a writer, nothing I say will stop you. And if you're not, nothing I say will offer the secret bullet that will do it for you.
Third: I think it helps to have all kinds of people trying to stop you. Like the high school writing teacher I had who believed to his core that girls couldn't write. Half of my days are spent trying to prove him wrong. Like my parents who think fiction is a wicked waste of time. Thanks, Mom, anyway for all the hours helping with spelling and grammar.
Fourth; I do believe that perseverance is 90% of the battle. If cleaning house or playing tennis seem more your idea of a vacation, writing is probably not for you.

“I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group.
They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them.”
Michael Moore
