“I’ve always wanted to write a book, but I just don’t have the time.”
“I wanted to write a book when I was younger, but then…”
“I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but…”
When you want to do something, you make the time for it. You make sacrifices and take risks to make it happen. No one is going to give you time: you make time for what you feel driven to do.
There is no “wanting to be” a writer. You are either a writer, or you are not.
If you really, truly, wanted to write a book, you would have done it by now–or else began on an earnest journey to do so.
Stop making excuses. Start writing.
