Came across this today. Apparently I am quite behind the times on discovering Bob Mayer's words, but I suppose it is better late than never!

When I moved to L.A. to start acting, one of the words of wisdom I often heard applies to most any art form, including writing: you have to put in your 40 hours a week. It can be hard, certainly, as many writers do not pay their bills with their words. That means writing after work, waking up early to write, or using those lunch hours to fill in the gaps. Keep at it, writers! Perhaps Mr. Mayer can throw some inspiration your way. :)
