Will asked me today when I was going to get my book written. In light of Ralph’s job troubles, it would be nice if we had another source of income, he said, so that Dad can retire without so much worry.
I said that it is not likely that I would make that much money from writing. Then I asked, “Should I write it as straight memoir or fictionalize it?” He said that Patty would like the second option. So I guess I’d better get working on the book.
He also said that Ralph should start working on his Arkansas stories, because he would like those stories to be written down. “Even if he never publishes them, I would like them for me.”
