I need to share the biggest obsession Iíve been having for the past year. Bigger than Disneyland.
I am writing a novel.
You see, my whole life Iíve always been ďthe storytellerĒ Actually this kind of has something to do with Disneyland. Not a lot of kids from my home town ever got to go, so after each of my family's yearly visits, I would go to a friends house and all the neighborhood kids, and even some adults would gather around and listen to me tell my story about my adventure at Disneyland.
Well, Iím now 26 and still love telling stories. Around Christmas last year my wife told me that I should just sit my butt down and write a good long story. I started and havenít stopped. I write as much as I can every day (usually only about an hour, although sometimes as much as eight) and love it. I donít write as much as Iíd like (I have to get good grades in school and also work full time) but I write when I can.
Right now my story has:
251 Pages (12 font double spaced)
847 KB of space on my computer
This is the most fun Iíve ever had in my life and, after writing for a bit today, I am so excited and soÖ.. I canít explain itÖ ALIVE, that I had to share it with someone, but itís late, and my wife already knows.
I donít know if Iíll be able to get this book published, I hope I can, but it doesnít even seem to matter at this pointÖ I just love telling this story I made up. I love writing it. I love it!!!
