A book

I have toyed with the idea of a book for a while.  Always running into problems.  My hard drive is littered with starts and brick walls.  But after a few recent comments, it's back.  That itch to tell a story.  And I have come up with the basis for the story and a thought on how to carry it out through each chapter.  It's a way for me to start with something that is completely fiction, yet still draw from past experiences and create something that people can relate to.  Im kind of excited.  It's swimming around in my head, certain ideas getting stronger, others being cast aside.  I haven't decided how I should approach it regarding letting it out.  Should I post the first chapter here (when I write it)? Should I keep it a secret?  What do you guys think?

On another note, there is a fun "Blog Spring Fling" going on over at Domestically Challenged.  It should be fun!  So, tomorrow, I will have a post here from a fellow blogger and mine will be out in the blogosphere somewhere!  So come back and show my guest writer some love.  And if you have time, try to participate, it should be fun!


  1. I'm always impressed with people who can write books. Though I LOVE to read, I don't think I could write one. My attention span would be too short. ;) I think it's a great idea, you should go for it!

  2. Go for it! Please post your first chapter. If anything, you will get brutal honesty. Plus, writing a book enables you to say all those things to your MIL that you can't say in real life.
