If I got a dollar for every time I heard someone say, "Oh you write books? I should write a book," I would be a millionaire right now. However, for as much as I hear people say it, rarely do they ever really go through with it. Most people who utter that phrase, don't actually ever intend to writ... Read more of this blog post »

Think of your favorite song, painting, or novel. It's pretty self-evident that the painting and the novel took weeks/months/years to complete. And I've heard musicians speak of taking months or years to get a song just right. Lots of effort involved all the way around.
