Stepping Out On Faith….Thinking About Writing A Novel

July 17, 2012 • By
Today is day 17 of the UBC!!  I am behind…again…but what else is new?  Actually, there is something pretty cool that I am about to embark upon.  Tell me what you think about it.

It seems as if this Ultimate Blog Challenge has had a ripple effect on my life.  Not only am I being forced to modify my writing habits from twice a month on average to once a day; I am getting a lot of feedback from readers….faithful and new that I should write a novel.  A novel?  Moi?  I guess they like my style of writing and think that there might be something there.  

I’ve let the thought pass through my cerebral cortex once or twice but NEVER took it seriously.  Me…the person who is always telling everyone else to pursue their bliss; to have faith and confidence in your abilities.  I guess when it comes to taking our own advice, it becomes slightly more complicated.

I have no idea what I will write about, but more likely than not it will be fiction.  Perhaps, a suspense thriller?  I am not sure, but it will be a lot of fun figuring this out.  Thanks to you who have encouraged me to move ahead on this and to those of you who have been following my UBC journey thus far.  I will definitely give it a shot, learn as much as I can about how to get published, etc.  If you happen to have knowledge, tips and advice, I am an empty vessel waiting to be filled.

I would like to think that I would still have time to blog full time about travel.  At this point, I do not plan to give it up entirely, but I may have to scale back to accommodate this new venture.  I am excited.  I do not know where this will lead me, but I hope that I have your good wishes and continue encouragement to see me through.

Thank YOU!
