Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday's question asks:

If you could write a book, what would it be about and why? 

One of my goals in life is to finish a novel. Whether it gets published or not is a different story, but the writing itself is fulfilling enough. I'm slowly chipping away at my first novel, and although I may not take it further than the four walls of my little office, it's probably one of the most rewarding things I'm doing these days.

My story about a women who loses the world she knows and the person she loves and how she finds the strength and the ability to survive her guilt. She becomes a completely different person, almost to the core of her being, except for those precious little moments she allows herself to remember. It isn't until she stumbles upon and watches from a distance a world similar to what she used to know ~ filled with trust, love, and companionship ~ that she even considers the fact that her life doesn't have to continue to be the way she's allowed it to become. Maybe she can be human again...forgive herself and love again...but at what cost?

As to why I would write about this, I don't know that I really have a solid answer. I suppose the essence of humanity is important to me, and all the silly stuff that we worry about makes me laugh sometimes. So, I wanted to write a story in which a person is stripped of everything, and I was curious about the struggles and triumphs she would experience in finding her way back to the reasons for being human.

Writing is both easier and harder than I expected it to be... just depends on the day, I guess. 

Happy Reading (and Writing) Everyone :)

  1. Yes, writing is definitely a journey, sometimes one that is filled with distractions, etc.

    I like the premise of your story...it can resonate with many of us who have survived horrendous experiences. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Really great answer. I wish you much luck in your writing endeavors. Sounds like it could be an interesting book but I hope even though she gets to look from afar that one day she will make it back there. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Sounds like an interesting story. Good luck with it.

    I've decided that the world is better off without me writing books.

  4. Really good answer and your book sounds fascinating. I don't have one single project I'm working on but I'm fascinated by the same things as you. My writing has evolved to examine life and people and how things change over time and what it's all about. I hope you end up finishing your book and that it does get published because I'd love to read it!

  5. A story set around real life situations, sounds good.


  6. I like your thoughts. I wish you all the best!
