Hend Salah’s observation likely rings true to many of you: It’s easy to write, but it isn’t quite as easy to become an author.

Fortunately, developing or strengthening a few personality traits can make that journey a little easier.

Specifically, you can follow Salah’s five commandments of becoming a published author:

1. Thou shalt not be inflexible.

2. Thou shalt trust thyself.

3. Thou shalt not mimic another author.

4. Thou shalt not be impatient.

5. Thou shalt not give up.

Salah has more to say about each of these at Writer’s Digest.
