Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by fellow bloggers Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every Friday they feature one or two bloggers and pose a question for other participating bloggers to answer. It’s a chance to find some new blogs to visit, and gain some new followers in return. This week’s featured blogs are The Truth About Books and Hibernator’s Library, so take a moment to head over there and check out their blog!
Here’s this week’s question for participants: If you could write a book what would it be about? – Suggested by Go Book Yourself.
So I actually have several answers for this, because I’ve had tons of book ideas over the years. I just have never been able to sit down and write them down when I have the time to do so. One of the things I really want to write about is nonfiction books about real life experiences from some of our oldest members of our society. It’s sad to know that the last survivor of the Titanic died six years ago and the last survivor of World War I died three years ago. I just feel as if we have a wealth of knowledge and experiences slipping away. Maybe they felt their lives were unremarkable, but I feel there’s a lot to learn from these people. I would love to spend my time capturing moments of their lives or at the very least learning of their tales.
Of course, I have several fictional ideas floating around in my head. But honestly, if I had to choose, I would much rather go the non-fiction way. Either with capturing the stories of our elders or even writing to help books for parents of children with autism. Maybe had there been more information, more support systems, more help available, my son and I wouldn’t have struggled for so many years. Cheesy, I know. But I wish I would have had more help.
I’m always up for having new followers on my blog and bloglovin (links are on the right sidebar.) But I’m really hoping to have new Goodreads, Twitter and Facebook followers this week. Please comment below and I promise I will return the follow and view your post as soon as I can!
