I have always joked around about writing a book. Recently I had a couple more friends tell I should do it. I say more because about six months ago I had a few other friends tell me the same thing. After we would talk for a while the topic would come up and they would say “Dude, you should just write a book.” My response is always “on what?” The reply is usually the same thing. You have lead a pretty interesting life, met and interacted with a lot of cool and interesting people so why not talk more about those times. Then I would ask.. Who in the fuck wants to read a book about me or my life? I don’t think I am anyone special or done enough to put it into a book.. And again my friends would say.. You never know what people will read these days.
The more I have thought about it the more I decided why the fuck not? If anything I would like to even see if I could discipline myself enough to do it. I know I can write blogs and papers and all that mess, but a book that is not an easy task. But again.. The more I sat around I always told myself I can do this.
Where does one begin? I don’t even know. I have started using my spare time wisely and writing down ideas and remembering stories from my childhood to radio to unemployment and I have started to agree with my friends. I have definitely led a different life.
So the challenge started Sunday (Feb 5). How long will it take? What will be in it? I really don’t know, but I am going to try and see what I can do putting pen to paper as they say.
One thing I do know is that I need to make sure I set a goal to write a daily word count and have a set time to work on it everyday.
I will keep you posted with periodic updates and one day this book sees the light of day.
Let the sin begin..
