Dear Reader—

I love to watch people and often wonder if that’s human nature or simply the writer in me. Airports are especially interesting. Recently I was waiting for a flight and observing the people walking by was like a buffet! Some ladies had on dresses and heels while others barely looked awake and were wearing pajama bottoms and flimsy flip flops.

There was a young couple traveling with a child about eighteen months old and mom had the most adorable baby bump going on. In a few months they’re really going to have their hands full with two little ones. I found myself speculating about their careers, house, friends and families. The cool thing is that I tell stories for a living and every one needs characters to care about. Creating those characters begins with people watching, something I love to do. How about you?

Happy Reading!
