If you could write a book, what would it be about?
If you sat down to write a book, which topic would you choose? Would it be a work of fiction, or non fiction? Tell us what would be the deciding factor in your choice.
Science fiction, poetry and political intrigue, but it would have to be an e-book because I believe in conserving resources.
I'd write a book on how people struggling to find work can make money online or with their computer. I've been there, and couldn't even switch on a computer, copy and paste, or send an email as little as 5 years ago. I'd take people through the process of everything I learned online for free, what I did with what I learned, and explain how they could do it too - so that they could start earning a regular decent income online in less time than I did. Many people search the Internet for ideas on how to make money at home or online, but they want quick methods or methods that cost a lot to get started with. If they have a computer and Internet, the answer is right in front of them, but many people don't know where to start looking, what to do first, or how to go about doing freelance work or making passive income online. I'd like my book to help those people. Nobody who owns a computer and can access the Internet needs to be without any income, if only they know what to do.
I've been attepting to write my life story for a couple years now as a help book for teens.
Poetry, poetry and poetry about all the subjects that I can cover in this beautiful world......
Actually, I have two books "under construction" right now. One is a biography of a friend's famous ancestor, the other is fiction based on a supposedly true story about an event my my great-grandfather was (supposedly) involved in.
The deciding factor for the first book was amazement that no one had wriiten a book about the famous ancestor's adventure-filled life. The deciding factor for the second came out of trying to find out via normal resources if there was any truth to the story about my ggf. When I couldn't, I decided it was too good a tale to waste, so I let the main character (based on his daughter, my great aunt) find a letter that sends her off to England to do a bit of sleuthing! ;D
I recently compiled some of my early poems into a small book. I hope to be able to compile the rest of my poetry into another book. After that, I think I'd like to write short stories and compile them into a book. I think it makes for an easier thing to do than write a novel. Good question!
I would like to write biographies and self-help books. Books that will inspire to live a more meaningful life. Have plans for a couple at the moment. Have to get down to writing them.

One has to wonder if some of the great writers and poets of the past had been given access to the internet and other means of communication - would the great works they created have come into existence? Or would they have been so concerned and disheartened about ratings, search engines, etc. or...

What's the difference? Which are you? Are words your passion or your business? Are you a creator or a teacher? Is the product of YOUR writing meant to inspire or inform? I'm so curious about this.

If you write poetry and/or fiction here, how well do your articles do?I am seeing more and more fiction hubs lately and am wondering whether people are getting enough views to make writing these types of articles is worthwhile. Anybody?
