Advice...hmmm. That's always so hard for me to hand out but here goes... Write. Make yourself do it, at any age, for any amount of time, for any reason. Do it. Make the time to do it. There will never be enough time so just make the time. Whether it be after the kids are in bed, or an hour on the weekends, it adds up. The worst thing you can do is not write. Oh and, don't be so hard on yourself. Your writing gets a whole lot better as time goes on.
