I am writing a book. 

When I was about 10, I decided I would write  a book someday.   I have always written essays well, and never had a problem telling a story on paper, but every time I sat down to write the great American novel, I got overwhelmed and quit after a few pages.

I got an idea for a book, and I am writing…  Furiously.  I doubt I will ever let anyone read this waste of paper, but for now, it’s a great way to use up some of my extra mental energy and not focus on all the things I feel I can’t fix. 

What should the main character’s name be?  It’s a guy.  🙂
