This topic came up again lately, with regard to award nomination season, and I posted a link to this essay:

Sometimes People Just Want You to Stop

It's not so much about trying to make time for writing, but about the people in your life who try to stop you from writing, and why. Not that I have any real answers to those questions but I think it helps to know it's incredibly common. And of course it's much worse for writers who are people of color, or LGBTQIA, who have disabilities, etc.

(I should probably write a sequel about people who really don't want you to be nominated for awards.)
