Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday:

1. Speaking of writing in books, what about writing the entire thing? Do you write? Aspire to write? Dream about writing?
--I really enjoy writing. Snippets of this and that. Poetry. But never a whole book. Rich often encourages me to try my hand at writing a mystery thriller. But I know I'll never do it.
2. If you do write, do you do it for yourself, or because you hope to be published? (Or because you ARE published?)
--Definitely for myself! Adding the idea of being published to the mix would feel too much like pressure, and I'm afraid that would take all the fun out of writing for me. (Besides, I know my limitations!)

You wrote in my blog "Writing because it makes you happy...I can think of no better reason!"

I'd have to agree! ^_^

Great answers, and I agree. I think I know my limitations and writing an entire book and all of the work to try to get it published is just not in me. As you said, I think I know my limitations! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I totally agree with you about the writing. I enjoy writing but doing it to get published would probably be too much pressure.

Ha! I figured out that I could, in fact, leave a non-anonymous comment. Debi, you CAN write a novel. I did ... twice! You've got one of those even if you haven't read it yet. You and Annie could write together next November. National Novel Writing Month really rocks! How about a challenge? I've been waffling on doing NaNo a third time. Be my writing buddy, and commit to doing it with me. Your cousin-in-law, Jean
