Most people don’t take their creative hobbies seriously (that’s okay, it’s a hobby after all).
However, if you want to take it to the next step, there’s something all the pros do.
The secret is this.
You need to switch from a hobbyist’s schedule to a professional’s schedule.
You need to set up your own “business hours”, even if it just means you’re the only one who’s going to show up to work.
No more working solely when you feel inspired to.
No more putting it off till the next time it’s convenient.
Set a specific time of day and get to work.
Do it over and over and over again.
That is how we go from creative hobby to creative professional.

Oh yeah. The most important thing is doing the work and not waiting for inspiration. I don’t know why, but writers always think they’re exempt from work, and that all they need to do is to wait for their muse to arrive. Doesn’t work that way if you want to turn pro. Anyway, thanks for this post!
