Do you have a book in you?
What would the book be about? Why haven't you written it yet?
Who told you that you are not talented enough?
lol, me! I've tried and tried and tried with no luck!
You may just need to go about it in a different way ...
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.
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
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.
yes i do. it's about my life but i don't know if i will ever write it.
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....

Have you written a book, or do you want to write a book?If you've written a book, tell us about it. If you haven't but want to, what do you want to write about? If you've broken through and actually gotten published (not self-published), what was it like?

Who here is interested in starting a discussion group for those of us caught up in promoting our books? Self-published, indie-published or traditionally published, all authors need to self-promote. Let's share our experience. Let's work together.
