Question For You: What To Write?

 
 Today, I actually have a question for you.
   I know, it's a bit odd.
   The thing is, though I love writing blog posts, I've been struggling with what I should write. So I decided, "why not ask the people who are reading them?" Makes sense, right?
   I've got a few subjects that I could write about, and I really want you to tell me the truth about what you enjoy reading most, and what you would enjoy seeing (whether I've written things like that before or not). Don't just read it and brush it off - give me your input!
   Okay, here goes. I could write about . . .

   1) My Books

   This is probably one of my favorites to write about, because it's what I'm the most passionate about (second to God, of course). This includes things like my Character Guest Posts, and anything else I happen to come up with. If you want things like this, give me specifics! Do you want to know about characters? Setting? Word count? Story line?

   2) My Writing Process

   This is a bit different than my books themselves. This would be things like how I plan, come up with ideas for my stories, inspiration, etc.

   3) What I'm Planning to Do With My Writing

   A lot of people write for fun, but for me I write differently. I write because I want to go into that as a career. I could talk about the processes I'm going through, recent things I've researched about writing, etc.

   4) MK Life

   What it's like to live overseas! This is a bit tougher to write about because it's actually not that different from any normal person's life. But I could still try, giving you updates and such on strange things that I've seen lately, restaurants I like to go to, different Thai traditions, etc.

   5) Favorite Reads

   I am a reader. I could suggest books that I've enjoyed, or a few favorite authors of mine.

   6) What I've Been Up To

   This would by far be the most boring thing to post about, as I'm not the most interesting person. But I'm sure I could figure something out - like actually getting out of the house and doing something so I have things to report ;)

   7) Short Stories

   I've never been one to write that many short stories, but I have written a few. If that's something people would actually enjoy reading, I wouldn't mind sharing a few! 

   8) Memories


   I mean, I do actually have memories. A lot of 'em. 


   So here's what we're going to do. I want you to honestly answer which you would prefer hearing about. If you have more than one, that's totally fine! Tell me in the comments or on my Facebook page Julia Witmer, Author. Don't be shy - I need your help!
   If there's something I haven't mentioned that you'd like to hear about, tell me, and include specifics!

         What would you like to hear about?

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …

Too Many Book Ideas

Every time I venture outside, a new story comes to mind. When I read the news or am told of a major event, BAM! new story idea. When I’m listening to a song, here comes a new idea. Even when I see a cool-looking tree, a new story idea pops into my head! . . .okay, that last one might be just a little bit of an exaggeration, but I think you get the point. For me, the problem with writing stories isn’t that I can’t come up with an idea, the problem is that I have WAY too many ideas in my head and I can’t narrow them down. Do you have this problem? Do you ever find yourself wondering “How on earth can I choose the right idea out of so many millions?” Well, if you do, I might be able to help you with that. This is my process for when I’m having troubles with choosing the right story. To start out, I try writing an outline down. If I know that I’m not going to forget my new story, then I find myself less likely to feel bad about cutting it for now. Sometimes, I try to write all of the stori…
