They say most people have a book in them, Do I have a book in me?

Everyone has a book inside them, which is exactly where it should, I think, in most cases, remain.”

Christopher Hitchens

I understand that it’s a big leap to write a book from writing articles and my blog. I have a book inside me, I have several in fact. I am sure of it. Should they remain inside me? Reading this quote from Christopher Hitchens dissuaded me for a moment. Then I came across this one which guided me back to my path.

“Whenever you are fed up with life, start writing: ink is the great cure for all human ills, as I have found out long ago.”

C S Lewis

I thought I should start by taking a look at my motivation for writing a book. I have always said that if I write a book I am writing it for myself. If anyone buys a copy it’s a bonus. I’m not seeking fame or fortune. This is self indulgence I suppose. Yes it may help some people, educate some people, some might even find it interesting…..

What’s it going to be about?

“A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.”

G K Chesterton
