I'm Actually Thinking...

Of trying to write a book.  For years I've insisted, "There's no book IN me.  I have nothing to write about."  Today, my hubby and I were reminiscing and I said, "We were insane!"  He said, "No, we weren't insane. We were young, adventurous..." to which I replied, "and insane!"  We laughed and laughed.

I often look back and share with my children different places we lived, people we met, things we tried, regrets, adventures, etc. I don't share with strangers, because they look at me "like a calf looking at a new gate" (don't feel bad, I don't know what that means exactly either - but it's always said here in Arkansas). 

Today, as Jay and I laughed and remembered - I thought, maybe I COULD write a book.  Maybe some of these hilarious things, would make good reading.  We are so blessed to have lived in a generation that was able to do things our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren will never be able to do. 

So, yes - I am thinking, but only thinking at this point.  I may try a little and find out quickly that I was right in the first place - we'll see and I'll let you know!

Blessings!

Do you remember when I interviewed you for my oral history paper? I still have the tape and paper. I loved hearing your story. Still enjoy hearing about your adventures. I think you should go for it. :)

If want an editor, I'm available. And even if you don't, I agree with Elaina, go for it!

E - I do remember. I'd like to hear it.

K - I'll let you know...if there's ever anything to edit.

I can already see - it will take intentional effort. Right now, I'm working on a wedding reception. LOL

How many years have I said you should write your crazy life down?? LOL I love hearing and sharing the things you and Daddy did when you were younger. I think there's definitely a book there! My neighbor has a post about tips on writing a book...you should check it out.

Remember I told you many years ago you should write a book. Think I mentioned Children's books but your life story book would be much better. Save me a copy -- and don't wait too long to write it. I am not that young any more!!
