Worksheet #37 – Your Someday Story
Most authors have a wish list of work they would complete if life was limitless and we were all as prolific as Stephen King. Many of us also have one story we’d like to write “someday.”
Someday is a stalling word. There is usually a reason–or multiple reasons–why that story can’t be written now, but the primary reason is you. You are the roadblock. Maybe there is a practical, or emotional, or technical reason why that story can’t be written today, but there is no reason you can’t plan for someday.
Your Someday Story
What is your someday story?
What is preventing you from writing the story now?
- Is your roadblock emotional? (You are concerned someone might be upset by this story?)
- Is your roadblock informational? (You would need to do extensive research?)
- Is your roadblock time-related? (You have deadlines to meet now?)
- Is your roadblock technical? (You don’t think your skills are strong enough now to tackle this project?)
On a scale of 1 – 10, how badly do you want to write this story?
What would have to happen or change in your life to make someday become a concrete time?
How can you make that change happen?
