This Made My Day
This evening, we had a wonderful visit with family. My nineteen-year-old niece prefaced a story she wanted to tell me with the line, "I don't want to blowup your ego or anything, but ..." She's taking a creative writing class in college and is working on an assignment, creating a short story. She mentioned to her professor that her uncle writes short stories, and he apparently asked my name. She told him and then said that I also write under the pen name Edward A. Grainger, to which he immediately replied, "He writes westerns." Well, I managed to keep my ego in check but I'm certainly flattered!
