4. Love the process

And then there were four well, I mean and then there was love. Love thy process. Um . . . Commandment number four is about the process and learning to love it. So without further ado welcome to number four!

4. Love the process

If you want to become a professional fiction writer, you’d better love the writing process. That doesn’t mean you don’t have doubts, fears and an aversion to your computer. It means that despite those hesitations, you still sit down and write. Even after you’ve sold your novel, finished your book-signing tour and watched Brad Pitt star in the film version, you still have to spend most of your days at a computer. That process must thrill and delight you, since all the rest of the celebrity trappings are only a small part of what you do.
