It’s a question I ask myself every now and then. And I’ve been asking myself off and on for many years. I think about it. I get excited about the ideas and the possibilities. I get overwhelmed. I doubt my abilities. I wonder if I could ever even find the required time. I quit before I ever begin.
So I’m asking you. Should I write a book? And if your answer is yes, what would you want to read?
I’m not going to kid myself into believing that I’m popular or internet famous by any stretch of the imagination. But I feel like I have a fair amount of steady readers here and it’s a number that is slowly, but steadily, growing.
I have some options. The most obvious would be to adapt certain things from this blog. I’m sure my autobiography wouldn’t be an overnight sensation. But I think I could collect the Legends of the Bank Teller into a decent narrative fairly easily
And then there’s fiction. A lot of the short stories I’ve posted here could be expanded. But I’ve got other ideas, too. I’ve been thinking about a sequel to The Wizard of Oz for a long time. I know it’s been done, but my take, I think, is kind of unique.
I ask again, should I try this? Would you read it?
