Many of us have things we’d like to do “someday”. I am personally hell bent on becoming a novelist, and I’ve been wanting to organize my personal journals for years and years now. But most of those “someday” goals never get realized.
Since getting my masters degree, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what it takes to accomplish those goals. I’ve had writing goals since I was a kid, and haven’t done it yet. But I managed to finish my degree in two years, and have a life otherwise. So what’s the difference between grad school and writing a novel?
