Writing fiction

Well hello, lovlies. How's Wednesday treating everybody? Good? Great. Faaantastic.

So far, my day today has been a lot better than yesterday.

Today I got Starbucks.

Today I have a to-do list prepped and ready to go, and I've already crossed some things off it.

And today, I saw this.

And first of all, let me just say that I have only recently discovered the gem that is Jen's blog. It's no secret that I love reading, and I'm always looking for recommendations of new books to discover. Honestly, I think that my absolute ideal job would be getting paid for reading and writing about books. Anyway, I digress.

When I was little, I used to write little fiction stories every once in a while. And at any given time, I usually have about four or five plot lines and character possibilities swirling around in my head. But I haven't actually written a fiction story for years... And I can pretty much promise that I won't have anything ready in time for publishing with the link up that Jen is doing so even though I'd love to, I won't be participating.. but I will admit that the idea of writing fiction, even of taking things from my own life, and rewriting the endings, saying what I wanted to say instead of what I did say, etc., the ideas that Jen mentioned, really did make something inside of me perk up and take notice. 

So even though I won't be posting a fiction story in the link up, and even though I can't guarantee I will ever post any kind of story, this is my public confession that I would LOVE to write fiction. Whether it's a story of my own that I change, or one of some character I invent completely, it doesn't matter. I just want to do it. 

Aaaaaand we are linking up with Liz today for her blog hop! Because it's hump day. And because it's fun. 

P.S. Liz could use some encouragement right now, so please go check out her blog, and make sure to say hi! :) 

The Hump Day Blog Hop

  1. Have you ever heard of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? Google it!!

  2. Wouldn't that be the BEST job? I'm the same way. I wrote stories constantly as a child, probably up until high school when I started writing for homework/work. I occasionally would write a short story, but I haven't written fiction in years. I wonder if that's still buried down inside me or if all my professional writing killed it :)

  3. I tell my husband all the time that if I could get paid enough to blog, I'd love to sit at home and write posts all day long. The more I write, the more ideas I get.


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
