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.

Clogs and Shawls: Mormons, Moorlands, and the Search for Zion


There was going to be a big celebration to greet the release of this, my most recent, book. I ordered numerous copies to be rushed to my bookshop at the Arizona Renaissance Festival, where I was going to offer free birthday cake to all 17,000 visitors to the festival.

“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
