So, I was searching through my plethora of notebooks, looking for a story I'd started writing a few years ago. Instead of the story for which I searched I came across this little bit.

My Writing Journey

Bedtime Story

Okay, preparing for bed tonight gave opportunity to pull a story out of my brain and lay it bare before my boys. It was all spur of the moment stuff.
