I usually just plow through it unless what I'm trying to write feels like a rockslide (mechanical, lifeless). Sometimes, when I know I am wasting my time and it isn't going to get any better, I just stop. I walk away and do something else. Usually, the problem is that I'm trying too hard, and I have to get out of my own way. Later, when I get back to it, I can look at it with fresh eyes, and whatever was blocking me is gone.(less)

When I reached that goal, I set another one and then another and then another. Each one was a little harder to attain than the last, but I kept on setting them. What I wanted was to write for a living and to keep getting better and better. That was the vision that drove me and still does. If I could turn that experience into advice for aspiring writers, I would say you have to want to write, you have to want to get better at your craft, and you have to keep reaching for the next level of your career. I have a hand-painted sign on my wall with this quote from a writer named Hugh Prather: "If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire is not to write." (less)
