I’m writing a book.
After taking notes and jotting down ideas for about a year now, I have begun the arduous task of building a sort of framework for how I want the core bits and pieces to work together. Additionally, I have actually started to write passages and paragraphs in earnest. I can’t say exactly what the book is intended to be about or what it will end up turning out to be about, but a lot of the bigger and more important pieces are sketched out on paper and firmly planted at the forefront of my mind.
It will be largely based on my life and experiences, but it will not be a true autobiographical piece in the traditional sense. Rather, it will borrow heavily from places I have been, things I have experienced, relationships I have had and so on. Additionally, it will heavily feature my creative writing to expound upon true events in order to turn them into something greater and more fantastical and (hopefully) enjoyable to read for people besides myself.
I think I have lived a pretty interesting life. Friends and acquaintances surely seem to think so. With what I consider to be an atypical way of living and looking at life and all that it encompasses, I think I have an interesting and engaging story to tell and bits of supposed wisdom to share. Maybe not applicable to anyone else’s life, it should at least serve as some sort of peek under the covers of my own.
I am toying around with tossing up bits and pieces in their own little corner of this website, but that final decision has yet to be made.
