the imagination that died

I want to write a book. Like, really bad.

I just have one problem. And the only problem with my problem is that it's kind of a big one.

What would I write a book about?

It turns out (after years of attempting to plan this book) that I can only think to write about experiences that I have already had or about ones that I hope to someday have. So much for imagination. Boring. And you thought this blog was boring. Just imagine a whole book of it.

I have started writing several novels...with started being the key word in that sentence. Somehow I just always lose inspiration after the first 10 pages or so.

But, my statement still stands: I want to write a book. Pretty badly. So somehow, someday...I am going to make it happen.

However, please, please, I beg of you...don't hold your breath waiting for this book to be published. You'd probably just faint after the first minute and a half anyway. And I just don't see how that would help at all.

I want to write a song. Like, really bad.

I just have one problem...

My imagination died.

You may find me in Never Never Land for the next week or so. I need to see a certain Peter Pan about a lost inner child that used to have an imagination.

Depending on how things go, I may never come back...

You are one of the most imaginative people I know. Technically speaking imagination is a cognitive skill and I can test you on it when we get back. And literally speaking the greatest books ever are based on someone's life. What is truly unique about the Little Women (German professor aside)?

Remember when we were going to write that book together? Maybe we still should. Love you!!! :)

That is one of my ultimate goals too! I want to write a book so bad, but I too have the same problem as you. However, I really do have no imagination and you on the other hand are super creative and cute! I would buy your book in a second!
