1. Head down. Create.
2. Love your work, but don’t forsake the rest.
3. Dear time: Please don’t run.
5. “I heard a preacher say recently that hope is a revolutionary patience; let me add that so is being a writer. Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.”
–Anne Lamott, Bird By Bird
