It’s dangerous cutting onions.
Which is what I was doing just before calling my sister.
We were both cooking dinner.
I told her I’ve been thinking about (for 6 years) writing a book. I think about it every winter when things slow down and there is time to contemplate such projects.
I told her that when researching writing a book a few weeks ago, I looked at the Chelsea Green Publishing website and read their requirements for submitting a potential book. The two points that stuck in my mind were (in my reworded nutshell):
1. Why is your book different than all the others out there?
2. What’s so special about you?
I told her that I asked an honest friend, What’s so special about me? Would someone want to read a book I write? My friend said I’m an inspiration. Then someone on Facebook said the same thing. Is that a reason to write a book?
Then I told her that I spent the afternoon reading old posts, mostly from the first year (2010) of my blog. You should grab a coffee and do that too. Some are pretty funny.
So, pretty much, that’s where I am. Should I? or Shouldn’t I?
