    Do you have a book in you?

    What would the book be about? Why haven't you written it yet?

    Yes in fact I do.  I have several, but the one I'm working on is about a journey of several characters who don't know where they are going, but keep going because they don't want to think about or face what will happen if they stop.  The reason it hasn't been written out fully is because I can be lazy at times, or because I sometimes get disinterested and end up joining writing tournaments and contests.  tongue

      Thank you for your answer, and have you published any of your books?

      None as of yet, but I do plan to at some point, whether it be by myself or by a bigger company.

    Sure do. A whole bunch of them actually.

    I've already brought out my first two, am hard at play on my third, and have concepts or partial rough draft manuscript manuscripts for at least 6 more on the back burner.

    Writing a book is hard work but it's also good fun smile

      Have you published any of them, or do you only write them for fun?

      I've self published the first two, and while that can be tough at points, it's overall a great experience. smile

    I've written two and a half books so far and have another five that I want to write.  I also am half way through a novella which I'm projecting to be between 100 and 120 pages in length.  When I lost my job years ago I vowed that I would finish a book I started eight years prior.  Being unemployed offered me the time being employed did not!  So I kept my promise and wrote my book and then another soon afterwards.  Now I work 70 hours plus per week and don't have time to be an avid Hubber.  Life just happened.

    I have written two books and half way through my third but it requires some research.  I keep busy writing articles and contributing to sites such as this but I have in me over 20 topics for books.  The topics falls in line with the principles of integrity which are closely related to my books and articles.

      By all means do. I published my first book at age 52 and wish that I hadn't waited that long smile

    I have plenty of ideas that could definitely turn into a novel, but my problem is I always seem to fall short of novel status. And the more that I try, the more impossible it seems to be. Plus I get spurts of great writing started and then somehow I lose my motivation. I have thought of giving my ideas to others and see what they can do with it, but then another part of me says no.

    I have a book stored on my computer. I just don't have the time to pull it all together and get it published.

    Yes I have a published book, part of a series which I call " bathroom breaks" because they are only 60 -70 pages long..I wrote them so everyone can say legitimately " I read a book this week "....all writings are based on real life experiences and living with the quirks in life...all done with tongue in cheek humor as seen through my eyes....everyone is offended......family,spouse/significant other,friends,xco-workers,society in general...and no animals were harmed during the construction of the book....hope you'll check them out..and comments are appreciated...thanks for asking this awesome question....
