A short story

Deer count last night: 25.

I had an idea for a story on the way to work this morning. I'm currently in the process of writing it. And no, I probably won't be sharing it. I'm not as brave as Elizabeth to put her work out there for all the world to critique. In fact I have a whole book at home with stuff I've written that no one has ever read. Not even Ell. My hope is that it'll be found when I die and someone will publish it for all the world to read. It will be titled "The Memoirs" and it will become one of the greatest works of literature ever. Or not. Who knows.

I do have a book that I'm in the process of writing that would be cool to have published. It's going to be a how-to mixed with a non-fictional story about the adventures of a group of guys and the trip they took every year. The trip was called the "Glacier Man" and they hiked or skied into the Allegheny Forest every winter to spend some time in the woods. From what I've heard the trip was a comedy of errors in relation to the experience of winter camping. So I'm going to use their stories to accompany the do's and don'ts of winter camping. Sounds cool, right? I'm pretty excited to write it. My biggest problem has been getting all the guys in the same place at the same time to get their experiences recorded. I have the intro of the book written but I can't go any further without the info. Maybe this winter I can get them together.

A lot of people ask me if I want to be a writer. I don't really, but I think I could enjoy it for a while and probably be kinda good at it. Who knows. For now I'll leave the writing to Elizabeth. By the way, Elizabeth is an author friend of mine who has a blog I read on a regular basis but can't seem to link on my site and use it at work. Darn firewall. Anyway, check her out HERE. I'm going back to writing my story.

Hey, when is a story a story and when does it turn into a book? Is there a word or page threshold that makes the distinction? Just wondering.

My sweetthing keeps tellin' me that I ought to be a writer..never happen. It is one thing to tell a story but another to write it down..takes more discipline that I have

Ah, but I bet your story would be a best seller, Guy. I mean, the stuff that already leaks out of your brain is captivating enough, I can't imagine how good a book would be!

I think counting deer takes discipline. I would lose track of what number I was on after about five. I love your deer counts, Sam. They make me smile every time :)

I think that Sam has been counting cows. (Huge deer with magnificent udders!)

Sam, I often thought you would be a good writer. I think It is a great idea for a book. Bye the way, a book is a book no matter what it contains . A story is something else entirely , although you can find many of them in books. :)
I have a knack for stating the obvious.

Sounds like a book I'd buy. Now if I can just get my ideas together, hopefully I can be a published writer myself.
