NEED BOOK IDEAS | What Would You Like to Read?
When I was in Jr High I discovered my love of writing. It was my goal to be a Journalist. I even received an offer to work at a local newspaper after High School (which fell through at the last moment).
I still like to write. I still have all my short stories and poetry from earlier years.
Every so often (actually, at least once a week) I receive a private email asking if I have authored or book or when will I write a book.
As much as I love to write - the idea of writing a book eludes me. I am not one who wants to sit down and write a biography (everyone does that).
So - I am asking all my readers to help me decide on what type of book to write. I would like to begin writing it this year and maybe finish in 2013.
What I will not write about:
-Techniques of running
Why not? There are enough (if not, too many) books on those subjects. I would like to write a book that inspires people - but exactly what and how?
I feel it time to pursue the idea of writing a book...but I won't write a book, just to write a book. It must serve a purpose. I will hire an Editor because I will self-publish. I have seen WAY too many self-published books that should never been published. Bad storytelling, bad grammar - just bad overall. I won't do that.
As an Runner - what do you want to read about? Thanks in advance for your ideas and input - I look forward to hearing about them. Please comment below....
P.S. If I choose to write a book - the person who comes up with the best idea...I will acknowledge them in my book and they will receive an autographed copy of my book, when it is in print.
