It’s not the same as writers block.. lord knows I could write and ramble for days on end and never stop- it’s Book Block. Basically, organizational hell.
As I would think most of you know by now, I am in the process of writing a book. I wouldn’t say it’s a hard task, because I know sort of what I want to write and I have a bone structure laid out.. but as far as filling in some of the blanks and organizational skills, I am LOST!
I’m going to do something now that I don’t do very often, and that is to ask for HELP! I’m in desperate need.
Not that i’m going to post everything i’ve written already here.. I don’t want to give that much away! I will, however, let you know the basic premise of the book and ask for your input- because it isn’t just what I want to write, it’s what others want to read that makes a book a success.
The basic idea is my life as it coincides with this blog. Life as a mommy and a blogger, and all the things i’ve been through with this blog, because of this blog, and the best blogs- in chronological order. Obviously I can’t put in EVERY single blog, and I wouldn’t want to. It’s just too much day to day and filler blogs. I not only want to tell people what mommy blogging is like, and what they’ll face because of what they write if they choose to be as open as I have been- but I want to tell the stories behind some of the blogs i’ve written.
My problem comes in when I try to choose what blogs, choose what situations to write about, especially since i’m trying to keep them in order with the life stories I want to tell. Funny, crass, and serious- i’m putting it all in there.
The questions for all of you are these:
What blogs are your favorites?
What stories do you most want to hear?
If you’ve been reading the blog for long enough and know what i’ve been through- which blogs would you like to have explained more thoroughly (i’ve definitely been known to be cryptic at times)?
What do YOU find interesting as a parent to read about?
I want to know it all! I want opinions, suggestions, whatever you’ve got- lay it all out there!
Any input or insight would be much appreciated. I’m very excited to write the book and have you all read it once it’s done.. I just have to figure it all out, pick and choose, edit, write, and put it all together before that can happen.
Best compliment you can give me is to tell me you hope your future kids turn out like mine. I mean, you're lying, but it's a nice compliment
