I sat with a young friend and her family over lunch yesterday.  I had learned recently that she is writing a book. 

I’m personally interested in writing.  I’ve been a part of a writer’s group and have taken courses in writing.  I write this blog regularly.  I prepare sermons.  I have served in an administrative role where reports are constantly required.  I love words and their meanings.

So . . . I enquired about the book. 

What was the plot?  She mentioned that it stretched over an eight year period, was about a young couple and their life.

I probed a bit for further information.  To which I received that classic line of all good writers.

“You’ll have to read the book!”

So . . . she’s got my order!
