Tell me you want to write a book with me, or you want me to write a book about your fantastic idea.
Last week I got a very excited phone message from an old friend. She said, “Since you have free time this summer, I was thinking we’d write a book together…here’s what it will be about….” This is not the first time I have heard this from friends, people I love and who love me. People who are not writers. They tell me I have free time since I have 12 weeks to write (I teach community college full-time and thankfully do have a summer to write) and that their idea is the one I should pursue (with them, because really, anyone can write a book if she has a good idea).
