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
- If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be? (Just the subject–don’t give away your plot idea!)
- 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?
- 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.
