This week’s musing asks…
If you were going to write a book, what would you write about? Would it be fiction, or nonfiction?
This particular topic actually inspired the creation of my wordpress blog! I’ve self-published a novella through Kindle Direct Publishing and plan to use that route again in the future. My long, drawn-out 2011 NaNoWriMo project is still dragging its feet in the editing process.
My desire to become a writer is suffused only by my love of reading. Reading is what feeds my love of words and spurs me to keep trying to write more and more.
I digress … I would like to write more mystery/thriller stories. The sky is the limit, in my opinion, as far as fiction goes. Critics can’t discredit what someone else creates in their own imagination. They can argue whether they find the characters or action believable, but every reader has her/his own perspective.
Writers who master these seemingly realistic or surreal premises and riveting plot lines are the stimulus of my creative spirit. Whereas I may not ever be an inventor comparable to the likes of Neil Gaiman or Roddy Doyle, my personal commitment is to keep trying.
Serendipitous to this post, a quote from one of my favorite people popped up after writing it. The quote read, “I do not like to write – I like to have written.” Gloria Steinem
Another great MizB inspired meme!
