Booking Through Thursday

A weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. Hosted at Booking Through Thursday. BTT interviewed their readers for a change, and their final question was, “What question have they NOT asked at BTT that you’d love them to ask?” They got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Cathy De Los Santos asks:

If you could write a book, what would it be about, and why? (Though, of course, some of you already HAVE.)

Ahhhh! That's my questions! :-) hehe.

So if I could write a book - it would definitely be a contemporary book and will have to include some great love in it.  Probably something like a boy next door, I've loved you forever and why can't you see that.  Or a chance meeting at the most unexpected place.  Oh something fabulous like that but alas I am no writer!  I can try but I don't know how good it will come out, again I write how I speak and yes I don't have broken English but sometimes the things that come out of my mouth are kinda not the most proper things to say ha.  But anyway yes a love story, slightly unrequited until the other person finally comes to their senses.  Ha!

What about you? What did you think of my question was it just eh lol?

Loved the question, Cathy...It sparked my enthusiasm, if you will.

I do believe we should write what we know...and also what we enjoy reading. The genre, etc. I like your ideas...they do appeal to many readers.

Loved your questions, was a great one :) I do like a good love story now and again and I read Nicholas Sparks' books to fulfill my desire for a good old love story!

Here's my BTT post:

Fun answer.

When it comes to me, I think the world is better off without my fiction. :-)

I loved that you asked this question. And your idea about a love story is wonderful! The world can never have too many of those.

I loved your question and I'm so glad you asked it and that it got picked! I think most readers want to be writers as well and of course writers love talking about writing and what they'd write!

A good question.

That's one of the best kinds of love stories, in my opinion.

In what little writing I've done, it helps to just get everything in my head out on paper (or in the computer), then I can refine and edit it afterward. A good editor could help you with that aspect.
