I finally decided if I don't get on the ball and start writing a book everybody will take my topic. Found out somebody wrote a book the way I was going to on the zika virus. I anm going to write about it but in a different way. I have to get that book written before somebody gets the same idea as me! Picture original photo I took of my hamster Marty playing in the bathroom!

@Marty1 Oooh! Got it. I wasn't trying to be difficult. I don't always keep up with the news. I honestly thought there might be a new virus with the name Zuma.

@Genipher I know you are too nice to be difficult. And with so many new viruses popping up maybe there is an undiagnosed case of Zuma out there! It could be we never know medicine changes daily with new researching published!

@Marty1 thanks ~ just like the zuma/zika case, I'm sure it's your auto correct kindle and Marty didn't really 'sell' but rather 'say' hello...

Sounds like a great plan to me! You can always write your book from a different angle, so go for it! Love that picture of little Marty. He is beautiful! Hugs!!!

I think as long as your version is different from the other one , then there's no harm doing the same topic also. That happens here actually .

@simplyd I just heard a newspaper science and health writer wrote a book on the subject. I didn't read it, though I might see if I can find it! Thanks for the idea

Good luck with that book. I'll bet it would take a lot of research.

@jameshxstatic. I might work on my other book that I have started a book of creative writing about nutrition. Adding non-fiction mixed in it. I just got back from an outing grocery shopping and the library and one of my library books is is called foods that harm and foods that heal. It is a readers Digest book and really goes into detail about nutrition. I will see! But I am a person who loves research! I can do research all day! I haven't worked on that book since April! I will get back into it! Or I might use the other books along with that I got and use them as a starting point for research on a few articles for another site that requires a lot of research and many words! I have to decide!

You can still write about it, of course in a different approach though you have the same topic. Your hamster looks so cute!

@patzanthony I totally agree Marty is a fun little guy! He is getting more fun because he is getting to be so much more mature. He is getting that way as he is going to be celebrating his first birthday three months from today on Septemeber 25th. I plan to have a little party! Probably my friends or my sister and her family because my sister and her husband are Marty's godparents! My sister just adores him!

You have a very long title. Anyway, I hope you can beat them all in your writings, so that they can't copy your idea.

@macarrosel I do have a problem with talking (or writing) too much! Sorry about that! Thank you for the wish! I am going to be working on several books I have in my head. One already started in April. I my idea is so weird I don;t know if anybody else will write one like it!
