10 Signs A Book Has Been Written By Me

February 3, 2008 at 7:04 pm 18 comments

My friend Rel tagged me to answer this and  since I find the topic quite interesting (as well as HIS answers) I decided not to turn it over to Diesel’s handler of meme’s and tag’s,  Grundir.  (If you have the time, hop over there and scroll down until you see this picture:  grundir_small.jpg  Very funny.  I’m done stalling…

10 Signs a book has been written by me:

1.  You’ll find it being read by the coolest kids in the sixth grade.

2.  It will always feature a powerful girl in mind or body but never both.

3.  It will come with seat belts so I don’t lose a reader on the wild ride.

4. You’ll catch yourself quoting one character or another.

5.  It will be set in contemporary times with a twist.

6.  There won’t be a sequel, but characters seem to wander around and pop up in other books of mine.

7.  There’s a pomeranian in it.

8.  You’ll learn some little known fact about something you think you know all about.

9.  I will be shelved face out at the bookstore.

10.  The dedication page will have a mention of person(s) from my blog neighborhood.

I’m not a tagger, but if people were so inclined, I’d love to see this answered by:  Nessa, Mr. Fab, Jon M, Guyana Gal, Seamus, Scarlet and anyone else who wanted to play.

    A pomeranian? In all your books? Very intriguing! 🙂

    I relate fully to your fifth point, sounds like it could be said of my books too 🙂

    Sadly, if it was written by me, it never got finished. I have no trouble writing short stories based on true events, but I have a heck of a time devising a plot out of thin air.

    AV – Yup, a pomeranian, the best breed of dog to ever land on the planet.

    Quilly – You’re living a storybook romance, I think it would make a great book.

    Ooh, I LIKE this! I will do it, although I probably won’t get to it until next week.

    Pomeranians are cute – the ones i’ve met are very much feline in their personalities… I assme you have one?

  • 6. katcampbell  |  February 4, 2008 at 7:33 am

    Mr. Fab – yahoo! I’m so curious about your book I can’t stand it.

    Dana – Poms are as close to cats and people as I’ve ever encountered. Where they improve on cats, is they come when called and are always up for a reciprocal hug. Had one…had to give my baby up when we moved to an apartment. I should have paid the astronomical pet deposit, I miss her as much as a kid.

    Woohoo! I love a book that requires seatbelts!

  • 8. hammer  |  February 4, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Yeah pomeranians!

  • 9. katcampbell  |  February 5, 2008 at 3:07 am

    Stacy – Action, that’s my favorite read and my favorite way to write.

    Hammer – Ah, so you know the greatest breed of dog to ever grace the earth.

    Dr. John! Where’s all this pessimism coming from?

  • 12. mrsjosegoldbloom  |  February 5, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    ” It will come with seat belts so I don’t lose a reader on the wild ride” LOL… this was my favorite one. What the heck, I might give this meme a try.

  • 13. katcampbell  |  February 5, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Mrs. Jose – Go for it!

  • 14. Shelli  |  February 6, 2008 at 4:55 am

    I think I am going to do this. If I can think of 10 things that would be in a book written by me.

  • 15. Shelli  |  February 6, 2008 at 7:55 am

    Yep. I did it. It will be up in the morning.

  • 16. mrsjosegoldbloom  |  February 7, 2008 at 6:19 am

    Okay Kat I did it and tagged a few more people while I was at it.

  • 17. Diesel  |  February 7, 2008 at 9:05 am

    Hey, for a minute there I thought Grundir was moonlighting!

  • […] dear friend Kat of Kat’s Random Thoughts did what I thought was a really cool meme last week. So I am going to do it now. And you can’t stop […]

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
