...............................................

I'm having major book writing blockage. I've sat way too long in front of this computer and have almost nothing to show for it. In fact, right as I decided to write this post about not writing my book today, guess what song just happened to start playing on my Pandora? "The Book I Write" by Spoon. That was weird.

Here's my current book dilemma: 
I've written basically all of the meat and potatoes of it. The basic story is down. The format and overall structure is in place. There are even a few good quotes and some excerpts from my journal sprinkled in. Man, am I glad I recorded the little I did during that time. Good stuff. 

But now what??? Do I just say "and then I lived happily ever after?"

hmmmm...maybe you broaden your view and talk about how what you learned you have and will continue to apply to your life...??
Or maybe you find more similar examples to really drive the same point home??

Hmm... that's a toughie. I like stories with a happy ending. And it makes me happy that your are living one. Things could have gone seriously differently if you had a crappy attitude or didn't meet Chas when you did and then re-meet him when you did. You could do an alternate ending. haha.

can't wait to read it! I'm sure you've already done this, but what are the big take away principles? The things that can transcend to all readers?
