Last night, I started something new. My 10-year-old asked for a bedtime story, so instead of reading him something or "recycling" an old faithful, I headed off into new territory. I have a story idea that's been "percolating" for some time, so last night I started telling it to my son. (Think "test market") He didn't want me to stop so he could sleep--good sign!
Now, all I have to do is figure out what happens next!
