A few weeks ago I had a call from a friend’s brother, a person I have known since he was twelve.
“Would you be on this talk show we’re organizing?” He asked me, as a sophomore student at university in the same building where I teach. (Talk about feeling your age!)
“I always like to support students,” I said, not knowing the ambitions of their Dreamers Club.
They organized a full scale talk show with six speakers who each had an inspiring life story.
I was the writer in the lineup and dished up as much creative advice as I could.
My husband assures me I’m bad at math and much closer to the million word mark than I know. I can tell you I get better with every story I tell.
