Setting the scene: My daughter was watching Little House on the Prairie. Laura was sitting at a table in the sunshine, working on her book. Here's our conversation from there...
Me: "Now that's what I want. To be outside on a warm, sunny day with quiet to write."
Son: "You want to write a book?"
Me: "I have a book idea in mind."
Son: "So, mom's going to be an author when she gets older."
Me: "Just think of all the money you could have from it."
Son: "If it's a good book that is."
Daughter (from out of nowhere): "Well, maybe everyone will pay extra because she will be so old."
But what do you say after that?....
