Day 40: Book Deal in the Making?

So, someone suggested to me recently, that I should write a book. Oh seriously, who am I kidding? People have been telling me that for years. But honestly, I don't want to. I love to write, don't get me wrong, I just don't know that I have anything to write about that people would want to read . . . you know . . . in a book.

A blog is easy. Takes two minutes out of your day. I may or may not say anything of value. If you get nothing out of it, well, it was free. And it didn't suck too much of your life away. But if it's good, well, it was free. And you got something good, something of value, and it only took a few minutes of your time. So, bonus! Right?

But a book. I just don't know. Maybe the task seems too daunting. Maybe that's why I don't want to do it. I used to say it was because the moment something that you love doing becomes a "job" it takes the fun out of it.

But maybe all those excuses, "who would read it?" "what do I have to write about?" "what if it makes me hate writing . . ." maybe they are just that . . . excuses.

All that to say, IF I were to write a book, what would you want me to write about? (not saying I'm writing a book people, just asking the question. Just asking the question.) And no pressure, but I'm really gonna need you to respond, just in case I decide to take this seriously. And don't forget to answer the question.


  1. Go for it! Um.... there is a writers group starting... just sayin' you might want to check it out!

  2. I want you to write a book about parenting at any stage. I learned tons from you about parenting when we worked together long before I even had kids. Now that I do, I'm putting what I learned into action. Seriously, your book would provide some comic relief and inspiration to moms everywhere. Motherhood really is the best job in the world, but it's also a lot of work. Write it, and I promise I will buy a copy! :-)

  3. You Do have a book in you! Many! And I'd love to see your interesting perspectives in "book cuddle" form. So we can highlight. And underline. And thank God for you ... sitting down to write a book. Love you!


Thank you for reading. I look forward to hearing from you.
