A reader asked me whether you “should” write every day.
Do what you can. In my first few years as a writer, I didn’t write every day. I’ve often talked about how challenging I found writing. It wasn’t easy. I wanted to write, and I loved writing. But I had to force myself to sit down at the typewriter and then stay where I’d planted myself, rather than running away.
Before the Apple, writing meant golf-balls, carbon paper, and correction fluid. A nightmare. I adored my Apple, because I’m a truly lousy typist.
