I find you can't take writing too seriously. You just have fun and skill will come naturally. or not, it doesn't really matter. Very few good writers can make a living anyway, it's the same as sports you don't actually try to go pro, you just have fun.

Don't take it too seriously, don't dedicate too much to it.

Make it a back-burner project while you live your life.

Otherwise, you'll burn yourself out.
