For the record: I started writing the first draft of all 10 of the conversations that gave me the idea for this blog for fun. That's it. I wasn't thinking about anything else. Just how much I enjoyed writing them.
But then, as with most things, I stopped and looked at how many of them I had. When I realized that I had 10, I started thinking of what I could do with them. That's when I had the idea that I could take this collection of conversations I had written and put them together in a book.
But, the goal, from the beginning of the idea being an idea has been to make the final product, whatever it is, be useful. So, feel free to tell me along the way whether or not you find the content to be just that.
These characters- whose names make up the phonetic pronunciation of my name- are also not wholly fictional. I have given both of them my personality traits. Although one of them is more aspirational, while the other is closer to where I am at in my life right now, I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which!
However, one thing is for sure. The scenarios and “advice” given in this story all came from experiences that I have had in my life. They may appear in different parts of this story than they did in real life though.
