Ten Commandments for a Happy Writing Life

I always have fun flipping through The Pocket Muse by Monica Wood. It is a little book full of big inspiration and writing advice. My favorite entry is the Ten Commandments for a Happy Writing Life. Here they are: 
 
1. Don’t wait for inspiration; establish a writing habit.
2. Take time off.
3. Read voraciously.
4. Shut out the inner critic.
5. Claim a space. 
6. Claim some time.
7. Accept rejection.
8. Expect success. 
9. Live fully.
10. Wish others well.
