I have this dream. This crazy impossible dream. A dream that I don’t know if it can actually happen.
I want to write a book.
I don’t know when this dream first started, but I have had it for years now. I have no idea what it will be about. All I know is I do want to write a novel. I love to read, but I have been in a reading funk for quite a while. Way too long, in my opinion. I think part of the problem is that I want to write instead of just read.
Have you ever had a dream that just won’t go away? The problem with my dream is that I just have no idea where to go from here. I don’t know what I should write about, what I want to write about or what genre, but I have this dream and I might as well just start from somewhere.
I think that after our wedding, I am going to spend some serious time figuring out what I want to write about. My goal is to just write a book. I have no desire to have it published – although that would be an amazing perk. I just want to write something and get it bound in leather. Is that a crazy idea? Can this dream actually become a reality? Can I actually write enough to make a book?
I did come up with a book idea, but that was years ago and sadly, I don’t remember 1/2 of what I had planned. I didn’t write any of it down, so I don’t have anything to go off of. All I remember was that it was a fantasy type of book. Or it was supposed to be. It’s time to find something else to write about.
What are you favorite genres?
