Relationships take a lot of effort — marriages too. I have never been in a serious relationship, nor marriage, but it is an elephant-in-the-room answer for a relatable question.

Becoming good at something takes effort.

Becoming great at something takes monumental energy. Becoming world-known takes sacrifice: constant time spent exploring the same skill over and over again.

Realise this with Writing, and it will reward you. Put in the effort and write every day. Show Writing you love the shit out of them. Tear off its clothes. Push them onto the bed. Make love to it all night long.

Ideas are everywhere. They are the creative orgasms that are spawned by our vibrant and chaotic brains. When this…
