A book about a book about me?

If I were to write a book someday — I mean a work of fiction — I know what I would write. It would be a book about me writing a book about me.

A first person account of me constructing a third person account about myself for national consumption.

The me I would write about writing about wouldn’t be a Me that friends would recognize. Neither “Me” (the one writing and the one writing about the process of writing) would be me exactly. They would be the Me’s I would be if I let me be myself without being concerned with convention or with being comprehended.

Me (both of them) would be the character I wish I could be or that I’m relieved I’m not — depending on my mood.

The first person third person autobiography would most likely poke fun at how most people construct what they think is reality based on their desire to be accepted by others based on their perception of what other accept.

And it would be a chance for me (this Me) to write like I think and not translate my thoughts into conventionally composed, single themed streams so others can follow. I could write in rivers, not streams.

“The Convention” would be a good title. That’s where Me would get inspired to leave and write about himself. He would write a journal about writing a book about himself while dabbling in writing the book. The journal would be first person and the book would be third person.

And that’s how I would write about me writing about Me.
