How can I be more professional?

“Professional and amateur writers basically do the same things. Professionals probably do the job more efficiently and more effectively, for a number of reasons: they have the daily habit of writing; they work hard; they tear up work and rewrite; they don’t give up easily; they pay attention to structure; they plan to a deadline; they are willing to change their structure for later drafts; they are steady plodders rather than incendiary geniuses; they get something down on paper; they think, learn and review through the process of writing; and, most importantly, they make sure they deliver the correct number of words in the correct place at the correct time in an appropriate form to an acceptable standard.”
