Writing Excuses 8.52: You Think You Don't Have Time to Write with Mette Ivie Harrison

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2013/12/29/writing-excuses-8-52-you-think-you-dont-have-time-to-write-with-mette-ivie-harrison/

Key points: You let people tell you you should be doing other things with your time. Don't let other people control your decisions. Decide that writing is something you are serious about! Make yourself a writing space or at least a writing ritual. Let other people solve their own problems. Don't wait for the time to write, make it now.

[Laughter]
[Howard] Then have that writer manage to write, anyway.
[Brandon] All right. Do go check out Mette's books, including Iron Mom and...

[Brandon] Thank you very much for being on the podcast. You all are out of excuses, now go write.
