I should write a book

If you’re a writer, one response you know you’ll receive when meeting someone who discovers you’re an author is, “I should write a book.”

I’m often tempted to give Hemingway’s response of, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed,” but I usually restrain myself with, “If you enjoy rewriting, you can definitely write a book.”
