This has been a dream of mine for years, to write a book. However, I underestimated the amount of thought it would take to simply conjure up a story. Who'd have thunk! After much thought I believe I may have an idea.. I won't go into any major details of the story, you will need to wait until it's finished for that. but I do want to begin writing down some sort of regular telling of the story. I'm not exactly sure what or how, but I'm sure that too will come.
I have not yet begun writing the book as I want to be sure this is the story that I will follow. I can tell you what kind of book it will be though. Throughout my life I have not really been much of a reader, which is strange since I want to be an author. Writing something I don't particularly care to read is just my way, I guess. When I was a young boy I struggled with math, but not like everyone else. I was different. I could divide, but I could not multiply. That still confuses me and everyone I tell, but as I said above, it's my way and I seem to be following those same footsteps with this book.
Recently though, I have begun reading and enjoying every bit of it. Currently, I am reading The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. This may sound familiar as it was a movie made only a few years after the book was first published in Germany. The movie was split into three parts, the first being the first half of the book, the second being the second half of the book; but I said three parts, didn't I? Michael Ende tried to shut down the third movie as it was not from the pages of his book. Unfortunately, Michael Ende lost that case and that movie was a flop.. Shocker, huh?
I initially thought the book I'd write would be some sort of non-fiction, thought-provoking book to draw those closer to Christ or giving them some introduction to a concept they never before considered. Much like Jesus>Religion by Jefferson Bethke (I love this book!). Maybe one day, but not now. Ecclesiastes 8:15 says to enjoy life. I think when I came across that verse it was God giving me the approval to write a fiction book. Something I've often felt in the past to be insignificant to me. Not anymore!
All I ask is during this journey you support me. I'm new to this and will be learning a lot along the way. With that will come many mistakes, so bare with me! If you've taken the time to read to this point, thank you.
