Reading and Writing

I enjoy writing.

I just don't have the attention span for it.

Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of having a book on the shelf with my name on the spine. The thought that somewhere in the world, someone I didn't even know could be excited about grabbing my book of their shelf and reading it again thrilled me.

I've tried writing a book. I have a winner of an idea. But I couldn't get it going and it sucked once it started landing on the page.

After banging my head on the keyboard for a few months, I came to the realization that I'm not cut out for writing books.

I think I could salvage the idea as a screenplay or a short story, but it will never see the light of day as a novel. Once I realized this, I became anxious to try it.

I've got a few questions for you:

  • What types of things do you enjoy reading the most?
  • If you write, what are you best at writing?
  • If I were to post some short stories or odds and ends in different formats, would you read them?
