Composing a Book

Sauntering around the city, most passer-bys would expect I work in IT. Not because I have the solemn look that a 3rd grade bully just stole my lunch money, but because I carry my laptop at all times. Except when exercising, because that would be cumbersome and isn't conducive to sweaty environments. I do store it in the locker room however, in case inspiration shows its form in tight shorts and a sports bra. May need to jot down some notes from the perspirations inspiration, an impetus for my imagination.

I've developed a plot for a novel and instead of dreaming of writing a book, I'm doing it. Slowly, but surely. And man, it sucks. Each sentence is scrutinized like a cat lurking by a window, and I'm always revising, revising, revising without furthering the story. It's only been a couple weeks, but I have gained much appreciation for authors during my mostly error and trial sessions. My ideas are intriguing, but bringing the characters to fruition is harder than climbing Everest minus a Sherpa.

So in other words, you all need to pledge to purchase at least 100 copies of my book. Not really. (Okay, really)

Okay..Any hints about what the book is about? I certainly will buy more than a few copies. Such a challenge for you! To think that you are really trying to do this while embarking on a new journey in school...Good luck. Let us know how the process is going.
