Develop Your Story

To my son Tommy,

One of the most exciting things in my life is watching you develop your story.  I have always fantasized about writing a full novel filled with well developed characters and intricate stories and me as the author shaping the direction of the story before it takes on a life of its own.  That definition of writing a novel sounds very similar to raising a four year old.  Perhaps your story is only a few paragraphs long right now but it only takes a few paragraphs to make someone interested in reading the whole thing.  And like a great book that you just can't put down, I will be right there in your life as your story develops and takes on a life of its own.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
