A Disappointing Meme

First Bev tags me for cleaning tips, now Brenda has tagged me for this meme. I think she is going to be very disappointed with my answer. But I will do it because I like me some Brenda. Here it is:

If you could write a novel about any subject, what would it be?
(Just the subject. Don't give away your plot idea!)

Plot idea?

Let me just explain this to you: If I tried to write a novel, I wouldn't get two pages done before I ran out of ideas. I just don't like making up stories. (That's why playing Barbies never interested me as a kid.) Real life has almost always been more interesting to me.

If I wrote a book, it would be nonfiction. I could see me writing a Bible study. Or a collection of humorous stories from my experiences as a mother. Or maybe even a text book or collection of research essays. But a novel? Never. Gonna. Happen.

Check out the reading list in my sidebar. Nary a novel to be found...

I suppose that means you won't be writing a novel on the 99 ways to clean your house? Or possibly one where pez characters take over the world? Didn't think so.

I like your answer. Let me know when you get that Bible study written, cause I'm all over that.

Ah, but your good friend Brenda forgot to give you the other two non-writerly options! Take a look at the original rules for what a non-fiction writer or reader can answer.

I was thinking about people like you! I don't see how you can live without fiction, but we need people to write devotionals and household management books, too. More power to you. :)

I am SO with you. I was praying no one would tag me for this meme!

Well, at least you were honest. And you can't disappoint me with that lack of novel in the sidebar. You just gotta be you!

You could write a novel about pez people taking over the world, couldn't you? And it might not even be fiction, right? Everyone knows you don't read fiction so of course we all know you wouldn't write it. But I do like Bev's pez people idea. A lot.
