My first book?

Well, I believe that I may have written much of the first chapter (not chronologically…but the first in a group of chapters) that will become a book. The topic came to me while I was watching the movie The Pursuit of Happyness. It is going to be about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…probably minus the Lockean rhetoric. Or, if I feel all smart and stuff, I’ll add it. Just to feel as if the hundreds of dollars that I paid for the Intellectual Heritage class came in useful.

I even have goals written out for the book, and have chosen the target audience.

I’m not willing to share the copy raw, but once I get it edited to a form that will not make all of my English professors sick, I’ll share bits and pieces. I’ll probably ask some for their opinions–ie would you read this book, does it sound like a second grader wrote the book–so if you are interested in sharing your opinion and giving your advice, let me know.

I can’t believe that I actually am posting this.

I have to thank Colleen for her encouragement. She’s been kicking me in the butt about this for quite a while now.

  1. So stinkin’ proud of you! Can I come to your first book signing? Looking forward to watching this process unfold as you share the genius that is you with the world.

  2. It’s great that you’re writing as i too am writing my first book, well, actually i’m finished with it but it need editing and some rewriting. Is your book a fictional novel or something else? . Anyway, i too saw pursuit of happyness, and i thought it was a great movie. you can kind of use the message from the movie to motivate you to writing your first book and most important finish it. The message i got from that movie was to never give up, and you can do whatever you want to do even when your situation might tell you otherwise.
