Boo to not realizing that I loved writing until school wasn't an option. Not that I couldn't go back, but my kids are a little too little right now. I have every intention of going back to soak up all I can and become a writer. I semi already consider myself one, but I feel like I need that extra credit and experience to gain that special title. To say "I am a writer". It'll be nice someday, but I know what I am and I know what I'm not.
-A good story teller
-Capable of living this life for myself
-Never going to give up on my dreams
-Great when I put my mind to something
I am not:
-Educated in writing (except for high school... that's it)
-Giving a crap about either of those two things.
I have been wanting to write a book for years. YEARS. I've even attempted a few times and got pretty far with one of them, but felt myself not loving the book, and feeling overwhelmed with it all. Honestly, I felt like Stephanie Meyers just whipping a book out of my butt with ZERO experience. I felt it sucking. I felt like an imposter, so I stopped. I didn't want to write an official book until I felt I had some credit behind me. Until I felt confident enough to feel worthy of even writing one.
But my creative self came up with an idea...
I have found a way to write a book without really writing a book. I've decided to write a book periodically on here. For all of you. I'll post chapters every so often and put up links to previous chapters in case you miss a post and you can be my listeners. This way I can write my book, but without the pressure of making it absolutely perfect for printing. You'll be my practice.
Because my brain is constantly full of ideas that I need to get out. I don't know which one I'll choose for you, but I'll make sure it isn't scary or gross, so I'll save my zombie book for some other time. :)
