Random Fact #7
Random Fact #7 -- I have been writing a novel for the last 10 years.
Not full-time, obviously, but sometimes more than others. I have written several short stories, started another couple of novels, & I wrote an Easter play for the church I attended several years ago (very well received btw). I haven't written anything for the last few years except my journal & this blog. The book is always in the back of my mind & lately I have been toying with the idea of leaving it as is as sort of a short story, combining it with my other short stories & partially written novels & seeing how that feels to me for a published work. I would like to take some of my writings from this blog & my two previous ones for combination into another book. I really enjoy writing, telling my stories (both true & imaginary). I made up stories to tell my son when he was little. I like storytelling. I think it is a part of my heritage (Irish-great storytellers, Native-history was verbal & passed down through stories). I enjoy the written word, painting pictures with words. I like verbal storytelling because I can interject my humor & emotions in the telling. This leads me into a bonus Random Fact. Look for Random Fact #8 coming soon.
