It seemed like a good idea at the time – get established, buy a house and a car, settle into a job, and then write on the side. I have a good life, and no regrets, but I haven’t done a lot of the writing that I meant to.
Like adults everywhere, I have found that ” being established” takes over, and there isn’t enough energy left to do the stuff I thought I would.
But every day when you wake up, you’re a new person — and you can’t go back to the person you were before. So there won’t be a better time than now.
(I feel very fortunate that “Writing on the Side” was an available domain name. I think it’s an excellent name for this blog! Magical thinking, I know… but maybe it’s a Good Sign.)
