Is It Time To Write A Book?

Is it time to write an e-book? This is not a rhetorical question; rather it’s a serious one.

The other day, I was reading a book written by a pastor named Ron Christian. It was a  very nicely put together book. The title is “Practicing the Presence”. I decided to look up the author and came across the website of the group distributing Ron’s e-book. The site is called SmashWord.

After looking at the cost, I am thinking of giving it, a shot. Here’s my rough idea. I would like to create a memoir style anthology. I’m not seeking to write a straight memoir. Rather, I want to compile a series of stories found on this blog. Each story would conceivably make up one chapter.

The question is, “What story would be best for a book appearing on Barnes & Noble or Amazon?” This is going to be a straight e-book.

The theme is more than just “overcoming”.  There’s also my personal view that my disabilities were never a prison. At least, I never thought so and neither did friends and family.

It seems I’ve come full circle. Years ago, some people have said that I should write a book. The time was not right. I simply was not ready. Today, I am asking “Is it time to write that e-book?”

So what stories should I put in “A Story of Grace”? As chapters will need to be longer than what appears on a blog; how can I expand on those stories? Each story would ideally take up a chapter.  Any ideas?
