The best athletes are always in training. They remain focused and disciplined despite the off-season. They run drills, stay in excellent shape with good nutrition and exercise, and study the playbook as well as game footage. They know the game inside-and-out; yet, they are always open to new ideas.
As writers, we too are always in training. Despite holidays, kids, day-jobs, and life in general, we must remain focused and disciplined. Our playbook is a regular writing routine. Our drills are reading about the craft. Our game footage is reading anything and everything out there of interest. We must continue to expand our knowledge and skill. But, above all else, we need to simply have fun and enjoy it.
