I started this rumor a year or so ago that I would be writing a book. I then found out I lacked the motivation to write a book most because I’ve found it hard to choose a topic and I am worried that if I go with something it might just suck. So much for my unfaltering ego, huh?
This past week, I was contacted by a literary agency in New York. They were curious if I had a manuscript and if I didn’t have one was I planning to write one as they were very interested in representing me. The agent who contacted me had been reading my blog and thought there was a very high chance I could be published should I write a non-fiction book.
This is all very exciting but it brings me back to all the same things that have been freaking me out about writing one. I don’t want to write anything that won’t work. I have been thinking about it a great deal and I know that if this doesn’t motivate me to do it I will never get one written. The whole week still seems like a dream to me.
I really want to know what you all think. I am leaning toward a memoir covering the past (and most adventurous) years of my life. What would you like to see me do?
