A new book

Well, here I am on a Tuesday afternoon, sitting here at the computer like I always do, wondering if what I am about to write is going to be interesting to anyone.

It will be interesting to me so maybe that is all that matters. I have started a new book. I LOVE to read and I have always wanted to write one. The first book I ever wrote, which remains unpublished, was written in the 6th grade.

I started a book 2 or 3 years ago that I never finished because I became discouraged with how much it would cost to do it.

I have to admit, I look at books like Eragon or Harry Potter, which I love and wonder how those authors came up with so much for their stories. Could I ever write that way? Am I creative enough? I would like to write for the LDS reader but I want it to be gripping like the those famous writers I so love and adore.

It is a big goal but one that I feel worthy of. I will try it again.

This one that I have started is for the age group that my oldest son is. Kind of like the level of Heimerdinger's books but I love to read his stuff. It doesn't seem juvenile to me but maybe I am immature and don't know it!

Anyway, there it is. I will keep you up on my progress. Incidentally, Jake read the first part and loves it. So far, so good.

I used to want to be a writer. I wonder the same things. Maybe when I get my house decluttered a little, I'll be able to think clearer and start writing more. I do love to read and am always in a book.

I love it, and you know I will edit!

You're always so great about tackeling new things.

I can go to the pool tomorrow!

Much love-

Yeah!! You should do it. You should do it. I know it would be great. I wish I had the command of the english language like you. I'd love to read it.
