(Folks that know me think it odd that I write, but not as odd as some of these trees.)
I started reading late in life. I learned of the fun and excitement authors could stir in me. some writers can actually raise my blood pressure in suspense I do believe. I have my favorites, but now the list is so long I cannot begin to list them. for many of my later years I read two novels a week. I ate them.
I was an entertainer. I entertained kids. As a chalk artist I enjoyed the challenge of telling a story and drawing the picture that went along with it. many times I challenged kids to come to the easel and pick a color chalk and make a mark or two on the blank paper, and I would tell a story and draw from those marks. I loved it and the kids did too.
I used many mediums to teach and entertain. BUT with the failing of the hearing it became impossible. I tried to fake it for a few years (still do at times) but after awhile you have to accept some things.
Since I loved to tell tales, So I decided the next best thing was writing a book, how hard can that be? Tough. Much easier to spin a tale. I learned quickly how many body movements, actions and facial expressions the story teller uses to assist the verbal delivery.
I still haven’t mastered it by any means but I am still trying. I started a book awhile back the third one I have started in the last two years. Two still rest in the oven awaiting my attention. The third one, I am finishing. When I start a book I have no idea how it is going to end. Sorta like the tales for the kids.
But about chapter 15 you get to thinking how is this going to end. Trouble is when I think of this great ending, I start hurrying to get there saying “THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD”.
Because of that, this is going to be the shortest novel I have written, I am estimating 150-180 pages.
The book subject? title? later.
Thanks for reading. I was so wrapped up in the book I nearly forgot to make a blog entry.. LOL
