NaBloPoMo / NHBPM Day 1: Duh…

Writing nowadays

Since I’m also attempting NaNoWriMo this month, today’s blogging prompt is very appropriate.

What is the title and synopsis of a book about your life?

The title of my book would have to be the same as the title, and subject, for that matter, of my blog.  The Mindstorm: Raising a Mentally Ill Child.  My husband has been trying to get me to take my journal, my blog posts, my tweets and other stuff I’ve written and form it in to some kind of book for years.  He bugs me whenever I sit down at my PC to do something time-wasting to use 10 minutes of that time to write.  I guess I’m finally going to give it a shot.  Who knows, maybe I’ll have a big mess of nothing on the other side of this month, but at least I can say I gave it the old college try.

You might say this isn’t about  my life, it’s about Tim’s life.  But it’s about all our lives.  Mine, Tom’s, Tim’s, Wonderboy’s, and The Daughter’s.  Mental illness is a family affair.  We are all living this life, all 17.5 years (so far) of it.

    Oh good idea! I think it would be so hard to just sit down and write a book, but to compile and join together 17 years of writing would be more enlightening I think.

    I have just discovered your blog today! It is amazing! I am raising 3 adopted children, one who has mental illness. Last night was one of those night, and finding your blog this morning was a gify from God! Thank you! I have been setting up a Blog as well, so I can get the word out and have a forum for my feelings and waht our family goes through.
