My excerpt today comes from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows:
I haven't heard from you in ages. Does your icy silence have anything to do with Mark Reynolds?
I have an idea for a new book. It's a novel about a beautiful yet sensitive author whose spirit is crushed by her domineering editor. Do you like it?
I was only joking.
I had to take a few liberties with this Friday 56 since these were the only words on the whole entire page!
