Yes, a career is important. Yes, being dedicated to your job is important. And even if you’re doing that for someone else as well as you (as I did) don’t lose sight of what’s really important, because all that effort put into making writing a career so that you can be together means a heck of a lot less if you’re not together.

And that’s all I have to say on the matter.
