“What should I write my last story about, Lily?”
Without hesitating, Lily replied, “A girl who finds a dragon–or did you write that one already?”
“No,” I answered, “not yet. Want to come in here in help me write it?”
“Well,” Lily said thoughtfully, “I’m making a necklace right now, but if you’re stuck I’d be glad to help.”
“Okay. Thanks Lily.”
“That’s what you do when you’re in a family,” Lily said, as she threaded a piece of yarn through a wooden bead.
So true, Lily. So true.
I thought for a few minutes. Then called, “Lily, I’m still stuck. Will you help me?”
“Okay,” she said reluctantly. She stood next to me at my desk. “What do you have so far?”
“Not much. Just a title What should I write next?”
