A New Adventure

Standard

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” -Benjamin Franklin

What a perfect way to describe my thoughts for the day. I came across this inspiring quote on a fellow blogger’s website.

Today, I’m going to share my new adventure with you guys. As I prepare to type the words that will follow this sentence, I am shaking in my boots. Like a mouse walking into a cat’s house party.

I’m kinda, sorta writing a book.

This idea has been bouncing around in my head for some time. In fact, I actually tried to write one in November during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but I got really busy with subbing and life. At that point in time, I was not fully committed to the idea. But, I am now.

I had fantasized about adding this to the top of my New Year’s resolutions, but I still fought the urge to actually write it down. Because when I write it down, it becomes real. It is something that I have to do.

In addition to this news, most of my upcoming blog posts will focus on writing and what I discover while writing. The plan is to focus my blog down to a more narrow topic, which I hope will make it more appealing to my readers.

What is one thing that you want to do but are too scared to write it down?

  1. Awesome! You should. You really, really should go ahead a write that book. I did Nano for the first time this year and let me tell you I felt really accomplished after I made it. Once you write it, there’s something awesome about looking at it and going “I did that. I DID that. I can do it.Wow.” And it’ll improve you in other areas too. I’m writing a story with three friends. My posts, when it was my turn, used to be about 800ish words long. Now an easy post is 1,200 and I churned out a 2,500 one last night like it was nothing.

    Now that you’re committed, you can do this! I can’t wait to see how it comes along! ^_^
