[Brittany from the Shyness Project has been putting one foot in front of the other and stepping out of her shell. She has even braved toast masters! I shiver at the thought of public – speaking! Brittany’s one question is, ” If you could write a book on any subject, what would it be about?]
A book. A non-fiction book. The stress! A book is much more stressful than a blog. It takes patience, love, editing, getting kicked in the teeth, and holding abated breath for a publisher to love it! I’m not sure I would ever have the courage to write a book, deal with the daunting task of query letters, and the countless rejections.
The world has always been out there and I have always been keen to explore every inch of it. Curiosity has gotten me into trouble a time or two or three or four.
But it’s with humor you can shake off the toughest dilemmas and embrace the chaos.
If I had the courage I would write A book of collected essays from my previous travels called A Travelling Calamity Clomping Along.
It would serve up essays with such titles as “Voodoo 101: Know When You are Looking at Holy Spirits”, “Switzerland has Sheep Fuckers” (yes I said that), “How to Throw a Graceful Left Hook while Shopping”, “The Knowledge of Golden Tequila”, and “Agile Roberto.”
Trouble finds me! Or maybe I find trouble! But I have a lot of fun on different journeys, skirted out of hairy situations, and enjoy life to the fullest on most days.
Now if only someone out there would pay me to go see it, write a book, and reap the benefits of travelling the world. I still have at least another six chapters to write…
If you could write on any topic what would it be?
