    I think we're in the same hormonal and chronological mode, fpherj - and I agree with you, we need to do it - or not! Let's make a pact and go for it! November is the month, remember?

    I think you are wrong in looking for a gimmick or a mystery. Are there any gimmicks or mysteries in Gone with the Wind? If the characters are solid and people can relate to them that is a good start. No guarantees some far-out adventure will sell.

    I wrote a hub some time ago called A Glass of Water. It follows along the lines of what you are saying here though I imagine since you have made this your thing you go into more detail.

    Hiram, I am in awe if you are able to write two different things at once, serve our country, and do Hubbing here. Thanks for serving us - and you are a huge example to everyone!

    Yes, I have a closet book in my brain - a few, actually.

    Let us know how that works - I'm sort of leaning toward the ebook thing, after dealing with agents and publishers in a different context. But it would be so awesome if you could get published!

    dianetrotter, that should not deter you from achieving your dreams. Just write, as long as you are not writing to tarnish other peoples names, there is no way you will be invading their privacy.

    I can so relate - that's one of the reasons I joined HP, too, Good Lady! Now I am ready to try e-publishing. (Takes a deep breath . . . )

    That's awesome, Rod. They sound like interesting stories, especially (for me) the office one. How did you get your books published?

    Oh, Pat - I hope you follow through! I downloaded a bunch of free (and cheap) guidelines from Amazon Kindle. There are a ton of books on how to format and load your book. And, it's free - you just submit it online! Go for it!

    Forget about being good enough. No writer starts at the top of his game. Try writing a short story and see if you can get some interest in that. Join a local writer's club.

    I think any type of writing is a good foundation for a book - it gives you practice, both in composition, accuracy and speed. Then, I think the challenge is keeping those creative channels separate in your mind, so you can switch gears. Go for it!
