So my question to all of you is how important is your writing to you when you compare it to the other things in your life. How much time will you dedicate to it? Do you have self-imposed deadlines, and will you work hard to achieve them? My next book has to be finished by Christmas of this year because I promised a number of people it would be. I am going to keep my promises to the readers I have. they are loyal and they deserve my best effort. Do you give it your all, or just write when feel like doing it. Let's do our best and see what we come up with.
