I just found this article: Boys and men

Go read it. If that wasn’t enough, read this one too.

Do you come home, flop into a chair, and start typing? Or are you overseeing your home? Do you see your home and children as your responsibility?

If you stay home to write, do you take your home’s care as your job? Or is your partner working full time then coming home and working another full time job cleaning up after you and taking care of your home and your children?

Are you a boy or a man?

A boy writes differently from a man, a girl writes differently from a woman. Maturity and depth of writing comes from inside, just as the story does. You’ll never write like an adult until you become one.
