The Writers Life For Me?

So I've been tinkering with the idea of possibly writing a story for awhile now. It doesn't help that boyfriend is adamant about me becoming a writer and supporting him. I love his enthusiasm but I really don't know if I have it in me. I keep having certain scenes pop into my head over and over again but once I write it down I have absolutely no idea where to go. I wish I could just tell an author my ideas and have them do the work. Also, let me just say that writing dialogue sucks. It sucks so bad. I give props to anyone that does it well. Me not so much. I've had an author friend suggest some writing craft books that I'm going to look into but I'm still not 100% sure that this is what I want to do with my life. All I know is that I would love to be in the book world is some capacity. My dream is to own my own bookshop/bakery. Maybe I just need to stop dreaming and do...


  1. I felt and still feel the same way, and it took someone else to point out that I've been writing like crazy about food. I said, "Why not?" And I started a food blog.

    Those little plot bunnies for my own vignette or novella are still in my head, but just writing anything at all is good practice. If crafting is something your passionate about, people will feel it, appreciate it, and read it! When you hit the right subject, things will almost write themselves. :D

  2. Thanks Marilyn. I think I need to start reading some craft books and go from there. See if it is something I want or not.

    Also, good luck with your food blog. I've visited your blog and I wish you lots of happy eatings. Are you taking advantage of the Orlando Restaurant week?
