Always a good time to write a book

The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes. — Agatha Christie

I figured to jump out of the history and get to the present state. I am guessing that since I have dishes in my kitchen that need doing, I should take Agatha Christie’s advice and plan it…

Don’t worry I’ll get back to my nostalgic wanderings about my children’s beginnings and how that brought us here to this place Living on Aspie Lane.

I am contemplating writing a book, a book about life as a pastor’s wife, mom to four adopted beauties, and how having a child(ren) with special needs affects our lives. I know, you are saying to yourself, aren’t you doing this HERE right NOW? Why yes I am and maybe you are reading the first draft of my book that will be wildly read by….the public masses,….of my family. LOL! So I have made this my first book project I am writing online. I am imagining this is not the best way to do it. Afterall, who wants to read a book that they’ve already read? that’s why I’m going to need editors and more editors and people in the business of book publishing to maybe be involved. Do you know anyone? Do you have interest in helping this newbie write her first book.

Ok, I say first book because it’s actually the first that may get published. I actually am writing a book about my family history (family or origin) and some incredible tragedies that have shaped my life and given me hope in Jesus. He has molded me and changed me through them. so technically, I have started my first book but it may not be the first one published. I have dreams to have three separate books written and distributed.

*First book is titled “Life in Aspie Lane”
*Second book is “Endless Ripples” Stories of tragedies that had ripples throughout my life and how God has connected the ripples of other people’s lives that connect to mine and make a different ripple in my life.
the ripples (tragedies) connect joy to the healing. In the end the ripples of our life experiences brought us here. we are who we are molded and made by the ripples from our own life and the lives of others.
*third one is “Lovin’ my Life through mirth…tagline: The ability to survive crazy hard stuff and come out laughing.

if you are an editor willing to do a stint of editing for me, for a good price, let me know. I know I can use the help. I’m not the best at grammar, knowing where the commas go, and according to wordpress, I use a passive voice too often 🙂

If you are a publisher…jump on board. I have a few I trust, but I don’t have an agent yet…may need to get one. I would love to know if there are any professionals interested in taking part of my projects. I’m so new but not SO new if you know what I mean. I believe everything the internets say…just kidding. LOL

So, Here I go on my book writing adventures. Now, if I could just have computers that would work…that would be nice.
