Write your Own Gardening Book
Article by Ron Cripps
Are you a gardening enthusiast? Have you ever gone to a book store to find a particular gardening book only to be bombarded by shelf upon shelf of books on every type of gardening imaginable except the one that you really want? How about the internet? You’ve heard that it’s a good place to find information, so you laboriously turn on your computer and enter whatever keywords you have into whatever search engine you fancy, and you’re bombarded by information. Again.
The solution? Simple really when you come to think about it. No, not buying out the whole bookstore. Not even finding some willing victim to trawl through those web pages for you, although that does sound like a good idea. All you have to do is write your own gardening book!
I know, I know, that sort of defeats the purpose of your trying to find the information you need for yourself. But just think of all those lost souls, wandering out there in a daze searching with mounting despair through the same maze of information that you yourself searched through only days before.
You probably think that you’re unable to write, but hey, if you can string two sentences together in a manner pleasing to read, and you can capture the attention of your audience, then you’ve got it made!
You don’t know enough to write a gardening book? I don’t believe that! If you’re an honest-to-goodness gardening fanatic, then likely as not, you’ve been gardening for most of your life. You must remember digging up your mother’s nice neat flower beds to see exactly ‘how it worked’! So, you’ve got the requisite experience necessary to write more than one gardening book.
Now what? Well, now it’s all a matter of finding someone to cook your meals and remind you to eat regularly while you expound to the world at large, or in this case, your word processor, your views on gardening. You won’t need to be reminded to water your garden, because conscientious gardener that you are, that’ll be the last thing that you forget. Besides, it wouldn’t look too good to let your garden wither away while you’re writing a gardening book!
And afterwards what do you do? Well, you could always start on a sequel, because really you didn’t do justice to all that could be mentioned in a gardening book. Or, you could just sit back in your easy chair, a mimosa in your hand, the drink, not the flower, and reap the benefits of your very own gardening book. As for that little nugget of information that you were so desperately searching for in the beginning? Well it turns out that you really knew more than you thought you did, and it too, is now in your gardening book.
