you may tire of me

alright, i have a confession to make.

i’m posting this to see if there is any support out there, or if you all just think i’m crazy, so anyone with any inkling of an opinion on this subject – speak up please! if you don’t, i might die. seriously.

anyway, here it goes.

i’m writing a book.

here’s the deal – i love to write. But i don’t know if it is one of those things that i irrationally love and everyone else is just kind of “meh” about. like when i sing, or playing beatles rock band, or gordon hayward, or princess bride, or any one of a number of things.

i’m shamelessly calling on you to stroke my ego a bit, or to not spare my feelings while you’re telling me the truth. i need to decide if it’s worth pouring all my blood, sweat, and tears into this, or if it’s just going to turn into a catastrophic failure that will cause me to carry through with all my threats and really become a hermit.

and if there is any ounce of support out there, then i’m giving you another responsibility – i’m holding you accountable for holding me accountable. the way i figure it, if i know there will be people checking up on me, i’m more likely to stick with it.

so, there it is. let me know, if you can find it in your hearts to help me out. would you read it? would you buy it? do you think i’m crazy? if i hear nothing, maybe i’ll take that as an answer…

(p.s. i just had an awesome weekend with my brothers. friday i had the day off and we hiked to a swimming hole straight out of “lost,” accompanied by my friend emily. here’s a picture. then, i had a dream that emily and i met president monson and afterwards, at general conference, he told everyone that i was crazy… not sure what that means, but it feels like it has to mean something.)

I say go for it. If all it is going to cost you is blood, sweat, and tears then it certainly sounds worth it, since most of us have can produce all 3 of those things without even thinking about it (and I for one have more sweat and tears than I know what to do with, and I can spare about a pint of blood every 52 days).

On a related note, do you remember Collin from high school? He just posted on Facebook that he is wanting editing work and is willing to do it for free to boost his should look into it for your novel.

Thanks Kira! It might cost more than that, but I could stand to be a bit tougher. And thanks for letting me know about Collin! Hopefully he'll still be willing when I'm done.

I'm WAY excited to read your book-GO FOR IT! You will never regret doing it-but you might regret NOT doing it! I love everything you've ever written-and I know lots of others who do too-and it's not just because I'm your mom!
