Five pages, I am impressed. I try for two and don't always make it... I read somewhere that some author--I want to say Hemingway, but am not sure that's right--used to end their writing day mid-sentence, so that starting the next day would be easier. Sometimes I use that trick. --Linda Sue

A good book recommendation is the best kind of gift!
