Have a work ethic and stick to it. I wrote five novels while living aboard a sailboat at sea. And this was with four other people living alongside me. To preserve my concentration, I often wrote in the head. I used the toilet as my chair, with my laptop straddled across my knees. I learned to write inside a rocking, rolling, pitching, sailboat. That’s the level of dedication I have.
