Writing A Novel
Do you have a book in you? Fact or fictional? Related to your blog or totally different from it?
Today I am resorting to using a #NaBloPoMo prompt. (And today we are on Day 3 of Internet connection problems.)
Do I have a book in me? Well, one of my dreams is to write a book someday. It is on my bucket list (do you have a bucket list?). I would like to write several books in fact. I have a few ideas for a couple of books.
I get excited thinking about writing a book. It would be a great legacy to leave behind. I would love to have something behind that potentially my grandchildren and great grandchildren can read to their children. In today’s day and age this book could stand the test of time because not only could I have a printed version but also an electronic one. And electronic files do not fade, become worn, or lose pages.
The books I am thinking of writing would be fictional. I think it would be great to write about a person and a place completely different and separate from myself. Whenever I read a fiction novel, I love how I can get completely wrapped up in the main character’s world. I love to get whisked away to a different time and place that sometimes it is difficult to return to reality. Sometimes I really do not want to.
Another idea I have is to write a book for children and adolescents based on my experiences growing up in an alcoholic home. It would be fictional of course but some of the situations faced by the main character may be some I have faced myself. I think this book could really help other children out there living in the same kind of world I did when I was a kid. If this book could potentially help just one child, then my job will be done.
As for a blog related book, I think it would be neat to make a book based off of or related to my blog. I know a few bloggers who have turned their posts into an anthology of their best pieces. I do not think I am there yet. However, if I someday get approached to be part of a collection of stories from other bloggers and writers, I will definitely jump at the chance.
Now, my only problem is finding out where and how to begin the process of writing a book and finding the time to do it.
Tell me, do you want to write a book? Fact or fiction?
