Birthdays: William Trevor (1928), Joseph Brodsky (1940), Bob Dylan (1941), Maurice Francis Egan (1852), Michel Chabon (1963)

Tip: In plurals, spelling can be vastly different for similar words, especially in the English language. For instance: one goose, two geese. But we do not say one moose/two meese. One mouse/two mice but one house/two houses. If you’re not sure, look it up.

Thought for the day: “You need three things to become a successful novelist: talent, luck and discipline. Discipline is the one element of those three things that you can control, and so that is the one that you have to focus on controlling, and you just have to hope and trust in the other two.” – Michel Chabon

Jumpstart: You can have any celebrity act the part of your main character. Whom would you choose? Why? Would anything have to change for this person to play your character? What and why?
