So I've had a lot of drama over the past six months with my soccer team. At times it has felt like living in a bad clichéd sports movie. There's been secret meetings, hostile take overs, and definitely a few villians (in my opinion anyway). All my friends think I should write a book about it.
But just because I think it's interesting, doesn't mean other people would.
You often hear the saying - write what you know, but that doesn't mean we
should tell our life story event for event (at least not when writing a novel).
My life is actually really boring (work, carpool, kids sports, laundry) with a
few stressful moments tossed in, not enough to write a novel (unless I embellished). One day I might
write my soccer book, drawing on the experiences I've had over the past six
months. But I think I’ll wait until I’m old enough to be able to laugh at
everything that's happened and right now I'm not quite there.
How about you? Have you ever thought about writing a book about an event
in your life?
