Oh so now I want to be an author?

I had this idea a couple of days ago, to write a manuscript that hopefully one day will turn into a book or at least an e-book.  So while keeping up with daily blog posts I will be peppering the manuscript with endless musings about my life as a diabetic.

I do not know if I will actually get published but what if one day a publisher approaches me?  I will already have a book written.  I am going to tell my story.  How it felt to be diabetic, how it felt to decide to be a bad diabetic and how it feels now to be back on track.

Nothing is imminent but with my birthday coming in a couple of weeks I have this need to accomplish something.  Not that I have not accomplished anything but I want to build a legacy.  I want my kids to get lost in my shadow and I want to be the guy that mothers say “Why can’t your husband be more like Patrick?”  Okay so I am being a bit facetious I just want have more on my gravestone when the time comes.

I have always loved writing, one day I will branch out and write about other things while continuing to write here.  There is more to me than my diabetic life and I want people to get to know that.

Yes if you read this consistently then some of the book will be a review, but there will be a lot that you are not yet privy to here.  A blog is just snippets a book can delve deeper.  Like I said I am not close to being published but why not give it a shot.  I did not get this far by asking questions first.
