21757 Would this work:

Fiction: Merry, Merry Ghost (main character is a ghost)

Non-Fiction: Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife
21757 Ah, sorry...will move some things around. I'll fix it!
21757 So I have a problem -- my professional career is in contracts...writing, negotiating, etc.
That's not a career most people find exciting or that they want to write a book about.
I'm completely stuck on how to complete the 2nd part of the task.
ANy thoughts?
