Good things happen and bad. You get busy and don’t take care of what you need to. Whether it is writing or the people around you. If you want to actually take care of things, you need a plan, and you need to work it.
It is so easy to live you life and get done what needs to be done every day. Of course, if what needs to be done isn’t writing: it won’t happen.
An old quote is one that I like a lot. “All those days that came and went, little did I know that they were life.” Stig Johannson
