When Mindy invited me to write a guest post, she suggested the topic be “10 Things Reader's Would Be Surprised To Know About You.” My immediate thought was, Yikes, how do I keep from turning this into an exercise in total narcissism? I’m not sure I have an answer for that.
Should I be frivolous? How about this? I don’t eat green Lifesavers. Hate ‘em. I consistently pluck them out of the roll and throw them away. (What flavor is the green supposed to be, anyway? Lime? Bile?) Sorry Lifesavers. I love your other flavors – cherry being my favorite – but I can’t stand the green. You should lose ‘em. It would save me some money.
Ok, maybe that’s a tad too flippant.
Should I be more solemn? Believe it or not, I have never read anything by Tolstoy, Austen, Hugo or, drum roll please, Dickens. What, I hear you say, you’re an author and you haven’t read all the classics? Well, have you?
No. That’s way too confrontational. And it makes me look like a rube. (Did I say any of that out loud?)
So, I think I should just be honest. I don’t know that there are all that many things about me that readers would find particularly interesting. But here’s the undeniable reality: I love to write. I mean, I love to write. I do it all day as part of my law practice, and then I come home, and, for fun, I keep writing. It used to be embarrassing when people would ask me what I do in my spare time. I’d hem, I’d haw. I really didn’t think they’d believe me if I said I like to write.
Now that I’ve published a couple of novels, though, it’s as if the world has opened up. I can admit my little secret. It’s all very liberating.
I think, unless it’s hurting others, people should do the things about which they have a passion. I’ve found mine. I only hope those who read what I write get half the enjoyment I get out of the writing.
