Permission?

this may sound silly, but i wanted to know if i could use people's names in a book that i am writing. some of it consists of the blog, but parts of it is just from people that have helped us, loved us, and been there for us throughout all of this horrible time. i promise not to write anything that doesn't honor anyone, but i would like to be able to write freely about the people in our lives without having to change annie's name to "sandy" or the cable's names to "the smith's". i'm sure that anyone who reads it would know who i was talking about anyways, but i just need to know who's opposed and who's not. shoot me a quick o.k. or no thanks and let me know. if you don't, i will assume i can! hehehehe

and i am going to stand up right now and say i don't care about the nay sayers in my life who say i'm not gud enuf to writ a book. i'm not out to write the next best novel, this is just something God has asked me to do... take it up with Him.

if God asked then who are we to refuse. Write away dear friend, and please don't leave out the hard parts it is part of the story too. Can I put my name on the pre-sale list?!

I agree with Mary, you have a God given talent to write. What a gift. And now you have two people on your pre-sale list!!!

hi, I just wanted to thank you for keeping everyone concerned about Randy and his family posted on how things are going for you all in this grueling process. I knew Randy growing up (i'm the cousin of Brian and Nathan Gaddy) and they let me know a while back that you had a blog I could read to follow how he was doing. I check in all the time and I'm glad to see that you have such a wonderful support system. You seem to be a very strong woman and coming from another strong woman, hang in there, and know that so many people are praying for your family and Randy.

You go girl! Jesus was a carpenter who was the best preacher ever! I know you have a lot to say and great things to put down. May God grant you zero writers block! :)
