I recently attended Killer Nashville where I met publishers, agents, and other mystery writers.
I was reminded of a couple of things at that conference that can help me in other areas of my life.
First, I have to have the passion. Whether or not I am writing a book or learning to ride a bicycle, I have to have the desire, the determination, the will to do it and not let up until it is accomplished.
Second, I have to develop the skills. Passion alone is not enough. But skills help mold the passion into a finished product. Skills need to be learned and practiced.
Here is hoping that whatever you do is done with the "write" passion and skills.
