Yes, that really is a picture of several books about Peter Pan. Now, why would a person need five books about Peter Pan (with several more on the way?) Here’s why. I’m writing a book on Peter Pan.
Now, I tried being an author back in 2009. And although I did write a full-length novel, it was not exactly the next Jane Austen or J.K. Rowling. So, I gave up on that dream and moved on to journalism.
I’m trying this author thing again because I’ve found a subject that I’m really familiar with and feel confident about writing. Peter Pan. Peter is a boy who I grew up with. I feel like I know him more than a person should know a fictional character. And that’s why I feel like I can write a true-to-fact story about him. I just know him so well.
Plenty of teenagers try to write books. I know because I read them on Tumblr every day, all the fan fiction and chapter excerpts. And yeah, they are awful! If I read one more fan fiction about this girl and Logan Lerman holding hands in a hospital waiting results for her mother’s blood test, I might have a small meltdown. However, my goal is not to make J.M. Barrie roll over in his grave. Actually, I want him to peacefully stay there and let me write something that isn’t ridiculous fan fiction. I want to do justice to the character he created. I really do.
As for details on what my book is about, you will have to comment below to ask. If enough people are interested, I will divulge the plot to my book, but nothing more. There is nothing worse than spoilers!
So, to wrap it all up, I will be spending my summer in Europe, doing community service projects, doing things with my church, hopefully doing an internship, working, and writing a full-length novel based on Peter Pan and his adventures. It’s going to be a busy summer!
Love to all my fellow humans,
