Is There a Book in Me Dying to Get Out?

Thursday, November 20

Do you have a book in you? Fact or fiction? Related to your blog or totally different?


I so absolutely do!  I’ve been thinking about it and re-thinking and wondering if I should and deciding I will and then worried I have no idea of what I’m doing and then telling myself to stop being such an ass and just do it…  But I am convinced there is one in me for sure!

The type of book however, now THAT is where I’m stuck!  See, I don’t have that much of an imagination and would have more of a tendency to want to write about what I know, have experienced and am willing to share.  I think they (the stories) would even be funny (see yesterday’s post!) because, well, that’s just who I am.  I’ve been telling some of them over and over for a time that I’d barely even have to think about what to write.  I’ve even been told that maybe I should write them down.

So, why haven’t I started yet, you may ask?  Well, in a sense, I have started.  That’s one of the reasons I write this blog.  I know I’ve mentioned it before but it’s still relevant to this particular post so I feel it necessary to repeat myself; I just wanted to see if I would be able to put words to paper (so to speak) and have anyone interested in reading them.  I think I can safely say that there would be an audience.

So look out world!  There will be a book by Dale Rogerson (me, not the computer guy that already has one out there…)

  1. Are you kidding. I’m still trying to learn to paint. I met a girl recently, in a class actually, who brought a children’s book in for us to see. She had about 10 of 50 pages of illustrations complete, and she said she’d been working on it for about 5 years. I write my blog. I used to write a column for a newspaper (about crafting). I dream of writing a book, and that’s as far as it will ever get. I admire the heck out of people who can commit to such a massive task.


    • Ya never know, Patsye! A little here, a little there, next thing you know, it’s done! You are already a writer (I’m duly impressed by your writing a column – I think that is so cool!) and a bloomin’ artist to boot!

      I have a niece who is in Uni in Creative Arts and I’ve no doubt she will succeed. She’s already written a book and now she’s decided to turn it into a graphic novel! (Ahhh… the energy of youth…)


    • I signed up last year. Wrote nothing. I thought of signing up this year. THEN I found NaBLOPoMo which is quite a bit less restrictive. I even managed to only miss 2 days – which, for me, is nothing less than spectacular!
      Thanks for sharing that video (I had never seen it). What a hoot! 😀
      You are a funny lady…
