If you were to create a mission statement for yourself as a writer, what would it say?
One line or paragraph, on paper, reminds you what you love to do, and exactly how this purpose fits into your life. It may also help you avoid the trap of writing things you don't really want to write. Silly as it sounds, people write things they shouldn't. Their explanations: "Well, I started the story about Aunt Tildie's hernia operation/clam bake, and now I have to finish it!" Or "I heard that speaker on crime fiction, and though I don't like crime fiction, thought I'd better learn how."
Don't try to be every kind of writer there is in the world. Choose the projects that draw you, speak to you.
