If she can write a book about snails and get published ...

A few weeks ago I said that I was looking for an aspect of my life that I could write about to help me publish a book.

Well, I have new inspiration.  After reading about this book in the paper yesterday I think I can do it.  This lady has written a book about snails after spending a year bed-ridden with a chronic illness.  All she could cope with, was watching a snail from her bed.  In her slowness as a sick person, she could appreciate the slow lifestyle and movements of the snail.

Snails?  Wow!  Surely there must be something I can work with if she's writing about snails.  

ps - I'm sure it must be fantastic writing if it has got published - I don't want to take anything away from her work - but it did make me think ...

I read this story too. The writing must be excellent....but I did wonder if snails could hold my attention for a whole book. I might see if I can request it at the library....

A Tween Appreciation book could be the way to go!!
