Over at GoverningAna, Starla Kaye has a post about her experiences as a spanking story writer. One statement from Starla really stuck out to me:
It always seems that if you mention to someone that you’re a writer, they respond with “I’ve been thinking about writing a book, too. One of these days…” Well, I went that extra step about twenty-five years ago and actually wrote my first book.
As most of you know, in real life I'm a lawyer. Often when I meet people and they find out I'm a lawyer they say something like "I thought about going to law school" or "I always wanted to be a lawyer". It seems like another of those "one of these days I will..." sort of things.
When I found myself saying the same sort of thing to writers, I realized I didn't want to be one of those "someday..." people so I got serious about writing.
What about you? What's your "One of these days I will...."?
Write a book?
Run or walk a marathon?
Play the piano?
Is 2013 the year that you go from "One of these days..." to "Today"?
