I like the sound of "a Toby Cole novel."  Good luck on your projects.

HI All,

I am doing a book review for a friend. He wrote it using actual things that happened in his life.  He now says" that he has learned that form of writing is called "The Ethical Will" relating to moments where one has had a learning experience that altered the path one was about to stumble along on." Has anyone else heard or are you familiar with this term in writing???

Best, docnme

docnme: I've never stumbled upon that particular description, but it sounds similar to concepts in "The Purposeful Life," as in a short way of describing making choices that turn "free will" into ethical decisions.

Best,
hijo

HI Hijo,

Thanks for replying.  I looked it up on Google and got quite a different slant than he did.  What I found made it sound more like a( letter or will of your values that you would like to leave to those that you care for or that you would like to leave a path for them to follow to insure that they have a good life.) At least that was my interpertation after about 20 pages of reading.  Maybe just my view, but I believe there is quite enough already written that you could suggest someone look to or follow to improve their life by choosing good values.  Unless you are a very gifted teacher.Like the BIBLE or Emerson or what Og Mandino did with "University of Success. " Anyway, he asked, "did I notice that in his book"? I cannot say that I did. It is a book of short stories. Of course, I can see writing it if you just want your children or family to know what you lived through and what choices you made. Then you never know, do you? The searcher usually finds what they are looking for, if they are not a searcher they probably wouldn't read it anyway.  I'll go through his book again, this will be the 3rd time.

Best,

docnme

docnme: hmmmm.

Sounds a lot like something now popularly called "parenting."

Good luck.

Best,
hijo
