One of these days I am going to write a novel. No a series of novels... a saga. And the series is going to be called The Library.
I happen to work in a library and yes it was my life's dream to work here. I always get this question from people: "What made you want to work in a library?" It's just like working in a department store, at a bank or a school. No one asks a teacher, "What make you want to work at a school?" Somehow working at a library is synonymous to.... I don't know... working at a church. ?!?!?!
So yes library work may not be the most exciting work but it all depends on what area of the library you work in and it depends on personal likings. I happen to enjoy what I do but on the upside, this library happens to be a regular Peyton Place, which motivates me to want to write my novel.
I'm having a hard time of where to start. There's secret love affairs, workplace violence, angry bosses, tantrums, fire hazardish cubicles, suicidical workers, insane co-workers, stalkers, sexual harrassment charges, regular ole harrassment charges and maybe some other things people would not expect to happen in a library setting. But then again, you may...
