This post is my entry to Option B of Princess Bookie’s Minichallenge, found here.
Write A Blog Post Explaining if you were to write a book about your life, what would the title be? What would the main plot be? Would it be a horror story, a love story, etc. Would there be a man involved? Crazy parents? Be creative. Just pretend you were writing a book based on your life!!
If I were writing a book about my life, I think I’d have a hard time devoting attention to every stage of my life up to this point. I think I’d have fun writing about my early years and my elementary years, but I’d want to skip over junior high… and part of high school.
There would definitely be boys throughout my story – I have a soft spot for romance in books, but it all started in real life. I’ve always been one of those girls who has a crush on someone… sometimes multiple someones. 🙂 And I’d have to write pages and pages about my boyfriend (of four years now!) and how our relationship has evolved.
I’d also write a lot about work and work-related stories – as I was bit of a workaholic before I went away to university. These stories could easily work as a transition into my current jobless state – and what it is like living as a ridiculously poor college student. I’m down to change at this point.
I don’t think I’d write about crazy parents, but I’d tell of the ups and downs I’ve gone through with my parents and how we’ve grown together, then apart, and now slowly back together.
I think I could write multiple chapters on my relationship with my siblings, all of which are younger. There has been a lot of rivalry and love between us and there are so many stories to tell – some sad, some happy, some freaking hilarious.
Lastly, I’d tell about my love affair with books. How it all started and what the stories that I find within a book’s covers mean so much to me. This would be the hardest part to write – I find it hard to find the words to express how much I love reading. I suppose that is kind of ironic in a way.
I think if I had to write my life story right now it’d be pretty shallow. It would be easy to relate to, but, even though sometimes things seem like the end of the world, I really don’t have all that much to complain about. I’m just an average American kid that loves to read, sometimes laughs, sometimes cries.
I have a feeling my book wouldn’t really make the bestseller list! 🙂
