The #1 Thing You MUST Do if You Want to Write

I am a passionate writer.  I have been since the age of 8, writing stories on my dad's typewriter and selling them for 50 cents.  As I grew older I wrote for school, and I wrote for fun.  I wrote to record things, I wrote to vent things, and I wrote to communicate.  I kept a journal, and I wrote volumes of poetry.
