Sitting and Sweating

I'll be taking Jane Yolen's advice for a while as I revise The Secret Keeper (Random House, Spring 2009), so please sympathize with the brevity of my daily posts:
Butt in chair. That’s how you become a professional writer. It doesn’t have to do with inspiration; and it doesn’t have to do with agitation, it only has to do with perspiration. William Faulkner once said, ‘I write only when I’m inspired. Fortunately I’m inspired at 9:00 every morning.’ BIC.
