This Is It

I'm tired of this. I'm tired of starting to write...stopping for awhile...remembering that I have a blog...etc., etc.

How do I get myself excited about writing a blog? And more to the point, how do people decide what to write about?

I've been told that I am a decent writer, and I would really like to write a book. I tried to write a few chapters of the "France" book I had in mind, but it never really took off in my heart. I just couldn't get excited about it. So now I'm stumped.

I'm sarcastic, but I don't want to write a book sarcastically, as that would get annoying to readers, I think. I love the way that Douglas Adams wrote. There is no way that I could or would duplicate his style, and a series like "Hitchhiker's Guide" only comes along once in a lifetime. So what do I do?

I am pleased to note that in the past I have had upwards of 3 readers of my blog. Three! Count 'em! OK...I'm done counting already. But perhaps if those three would tell others, I could get some more people reading and I would be inclined to write more. I would also love it if I could get some brainstorming ideas of what would make a good book for my writing style.

So here is my challenge: anyone who is reading this post...please get another 2 people to read it. Then, I would like it if those folks would comment by either clicking on the "comment" link or by clicking on my profile and sending me an email. I would really be grateful for ... note the following ... useful comments.

Thanks in advance. I'm gone.
