The Story of the Day

I’m a suspense writer, but let me tell you a love story.

This one’s of a writer who woke up early every morning to write a new short story or random narration--he called it "The Story of the Day." He had to finish the story and email it by 7:30 am, so the story would be in the recipient's inbox before she arrived to her office.

It was her ritual, you see, to read "The Story of the Day" before starting the work day. Sometimes, the stories came in installments, and she hurried to the office, her hands trembled with excitement as the computer started up.

Just as the writer's first waking thought was of her--and what kind of story she would like to hear--the woman's first waking thought was of him--and what story would he write for her.

Needless to say, the writer and his reader fell in love--were in love--and those daily stories became a big novel with a wedding, kids, and a happily ever after.

I must say I enjoyed writing those stories.

Today is my seventh wedding anniversary, so I can write of nothing else but what’s in my heart—my awesome bride, the joy and love of my life. Thanks for being my most loyal reader, baby.
