I've been inspired!

June 3, 2009

It's quite funny actually, how the simplest things can inspire me to do something I'm neither educated in, or really good at!
I've had this idea for a while about writing a book (in the Bridget Jones diary sort of way) except about a mormon girl...now I know you are probably thinking "Oh how boring." But ever since I was in the Young Women's Presidency at our old ward, I've cracked up at how funny these teenage mormon girls are. I'm currently in the YW's presidency at our new ward and I hadn't thought much about my book idea until I started reading these stinkin' hilarious books by an author named Louise Rennison. The first book in the series is called Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Yes I know it's quite funny. Anyway there are like 9 books in the series and they are about a teenage girl in England named Georgia Nicolson,  just going through her day to day life, dreaming about the Robbie (the Sex God) and learning how to Snog (kiss). These books have inspired me to take notes at church on Sundays, or at Wednesday night activities, and possibly start this so-called book. 
Now mind you I have NO education or experience in writing-unless you count Ms. Anderson's Creative Writing class in High School-nor do I think I have a talent for writing, but sometimes I sit at the computer and will write down things/ideas that come to my mind...the whole point of it though is to really just get it out of my head 'cause I've got a lot going on up there (I know, shocking). Anyway I'm hoping that just by listening and taking notes of these girls, I don't have to do much work at all. Kerching!
Of course if my hubby or Amanda read this they would probably tisk at me since they are writers and I'm inadvertently making a mokery of their art. Of course it was Amanda who got me started reading the Georgia Nicolson books in the first place, so it's all her fault!
Anyway, if anyone has some funny teenage, mormony stories they would like to share send them my way and I'll add them in.

I love the idea! Run with it. You are so creative and I think that book would be a HIT!
