  • Budding Novelist Pursues His Passion

    Jun 3, 2009

    Many of us have dreams, but how many dare to pursue them, gain the tools and abilities and take the time to live their dreams' Rufus Curry was a young officer more than ten years ago, when he was struck with the idea for a story and the irresistible urge to write. The urge has evolved into "One Week Gig," a novel about "Love, (and good lovin'), good music, disappointment, dreams, adventure, victory and temptation." "It spooked me," Curry, now a lieutenant colonel with U.S. Southern Command, said. "I just sat down and wrote 58 pages without stopping." Not knowing what to do, he shelved it until the next opportunity. "Three years later I was in Bosnia," he said. "I converted it from the old computer format, wrote a lot more, and then put it on the shelf. I didn't know what to do - how to get a book printed, or anything." A few years later he viewed an interview with Jack Canfield, author of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books, and what Canfield said changed his mind. The author admitted that he started writing the series to make money, that at the time he started he really needed the income. Curry hired an editor to hone the book. "The first draft came back from the editor looking like she had killed a small child (from the red ink)," he said with a smile. "But she asked probing questions that allowed me to win, and tell my story; it was bubbling out of me."
