Consuming Passion

“Having a consuming passion to write.”

Consuming is a very good word to use in this instance. There is this feeling, this need to write that fills writers.

There is a saying out there that is very apt: A writer is never on vacation and never has a day off. A writer is either writing or thinking about writing.

Everyone thinks they can be a writer. I’ve heard so many people say things like, “I could write a book, it’s easy. I just don’t have time.” or “I wrote something a few years ago, I just need to go back and finish it.”

I laugh, sometimes out loud, at these people. You are not a writer. And it is very likely you will never be a published author. Writers write. They make time to write.
