Life can get in the way of writing--wife, kids, grandchildren, etc. When I feel too much going on is usually when I have trouble writing--and the best thing for me is too take a break and not worry about it.(less)

It is difficult to stay focused on the writing when there are so many distractions--much of that related to promotion and marketing (often with little success). But I would think that staying committed to the actual writing (and finding a good editor) is the best advice.(less)

“He followed the Denver teams, and was an avid Rockies fan. He thought baseball was a smart game, played more or less according to rules. Football, by contrast, seemed like chaos, with victory often being decided by penalties for breaking rules that were subjective and poorly administered. It was as if the government was in charge of football, with all of its bickering and clowning, while baseball was run by the best fourth-grade teacher you ever had, the one who ensured that everyone played by the rules or not at all, and if you weren’t polite, there were consequences. He wasn’t sure where basketball fit in.”
Ted Clifton, Santa Fe Mojo
