Nora Roberts isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Every time I see or read an interview with her, I’m impressed. Her recurring theme when asked how she manages to pump out five books per year, year after year, is, well…it’s her job.
Or, in typical writer-style emphasis: It’s. Her. Job.
She sits down 5-6 days a week for 6 or more hours and writes. Huh.
You just have to keep writing, even when everything you write sucks, because as she once said, “You can fix a bad page. You can’t fix a blank page.” (Love that quote!)
So, I’m aspiring to be like Nora Roberts. Yes, eventually, a sliver of her success, or more, would be great. But, for now, I’m focusing on being the type of writer she is. Consistent and prolific.
