Write or wrong?

Just read an excellent piece on writing by Anna Quindlen.
In it, she talks a bit about writing, and how most prolific writers, contrary to popular belief, hate writing. For many of them, it’s not an innate ability their blessed with, moreover, it’s something they come to despise.
In her piece, Quindlen talks about having to force herself to write, and only within a certain time frame — outside of which, she struggles.
I can relate. Specifically to what she says about how having a job that involves writing works more against you than for you.
As a copy editor at a newspaper, the last thing I wanna do is blog when I get home. I’d much rather watch a flick or veg out. Which brings us to my quandary — what should I do?
