    Yeah, I junked my first attempt because I want to go in another direction. Unfortunately, that's as far as I got. Anybody else in my shoes?

    I was THE Dad everyone of my kids friends wanted to hear stories from.
    I had my own set of characters who had various adventures. Kids who spent the night always wanted to have me tell them stories.
    My daughter (now 21)...keeps after me to write the stories down....I don't think they were that good...I don't know.

    Oh, do it. Truly. Give it to her in a book of your own making, if nothing else. That's the kind of gift nobody ever forgets.

    It's generational. :) I WISH I had something like that from my dad. And hopefully, there will be a next gen unseemly or two, and after awhile people who never knew their great-grand will have something wonderful to remember you by.

    I did playwrites, skits and films years ago. It was my fav hobby as a kid and I did it through college.
    I just got burned out trying to feed the hiddious bitch goddess that is entertainment.
