Hey, Universe. Where’s My Book?

I once read that J. K. Rowling had the idea for Harry Potter just pop into her head out of nowhere. She said the story was just there for her to discover.

Well, how fair is that?

My mind is vacant enough at times that I would think the universe could plop a good story into my head. I fiddled around for years trying to write children’s picture books, but after seeing so many interesting short stories at Smashwords, I realized I was in the wrong genre.

I’ve lived a colorful life so far. People who know me really do shake their heads, laugh, and say, “You should write a book.” I know no one wants to read about my life, and I don’t want to read about my neighbor’s life. But I could weave some of my experiences into Susan Hunter’s life.

Once I had that realization, the first book was just there, and I couldn’t write it down fast enough.

  1. All my friends say also that I should write a book about my life. I tell them most people would think it was fiction. You would be amazed at how many people enjoy reading about someone else’s life. my best posts have been about my past. Strange isn’t it? We take it for granted because we have lived it.
