Wow, so there's yet *another* thing I can do instead of writing! This place!

I'm 200 pages into a novel, and aside from the opening scene...I'm not sure anything has really happened yet. Killin' me. I gotta disappear the main guy's parents...but all this exposition keeps getting in the way.

I need a writers' group here in Chicago. And I'm not using the word "need" lightly. I'm half-decent, have ideas and chops, and yet I'm...wayward. Muddled.

And it's not as if sitting…

I'm still sad about the loss of Arrested Development. And . . .Raising Arizona? A classic.

Indeed. I'm sure our surplus of free time will serve us well...

Hey Scott, I noticed on your blog that you are a dad of two little boys. Too cool - we crime fiction-writing parents of small children need to stick together! ;)
