Excerpt

Dean’s eyes were studying me. “You have a way with words. What kind of writing do you want to do?”

“Articles for Dad’s paper, to start.”

“What do you want to write about?”

I paused, suddenly uncertain about how much to share. Dean’s eyes were reassuring.

“When I know more, I’d like to write about deeper things.”
