A Novel Idea

So I was tagged by Jill over at Christian Work at Home Moms for this fun little game.

Here’s the game: A Novel Idea

  1. If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be? (Just the subject–don’t give away your plot idea!)
  2. Or, if just the thought of having to write anything gives you hives, what would you like to read about in a novel that you’ve never seen done before?
  3. Or if you hate reading fiction (you can get counseling for that, you know), what subject might make you change your mind or try it anyway?

My answer: I guess if I were able to write a novel on any subject, I would choose some type of historical fiction. I love to read, and historical fiction is usually my first choice because I feel like I am learning something while I am also enjoying myself. (Although you do have to be careful of any author’s potential historical bias on events and take some things with a grain of salt.) I am not sure what type of history I would choose though. I do know that if I could at all pull it off, that I would not want the overall story itself to be predictable. I like stories that make me want to stay up until all hours of the night because I cannot put the book down.

When I was around 10, I used to write fictional stories and poems all the time. They usually involved my school friends and mystical things such as unicorns and magic. Anyone following my blog when I talk about my childhood memories can probably tell that I really had a thing for unicorns when I was growing up. No worries though; I don’t have a house full of unicorns or anything like Christine Taylor’s character in Dodgeball. Greg would so not be okay with that.

I know this isn’t a novel, but I sometimes enjoy making training guides for different programs and processes at work. Pretty boring and technical, but writing nonetheless.

I am not going to tag anyone in particular, but if you do play the game, please let me know so I can read your answer.
