It's been one of those terribly frustrating (writer's) days - feeling good and with time to be creative, yet nothing comes. I have my amateur sleuth sitting in his car watching the bad guys who have abducted a couple of young women. Yet no one is moving. The bad guys and their "cargo" are in a limo down a laneway; my man Peter is in his car in the street, watching and not knowing what to do next. Something's got to happen, someone's got to move. I wish they'd hurry up and decide and let me know so that I can continue telling their story.

Thanks Kathryn .. it might be the onkly answer, although I hate relying on the old cell phone (i.e. mobile in Australia) solutiuon. It seems so many stories/films/tv dramas these days are little more than a succession of people talking on their phones. It may be a feature of modern life but it sure as hell makes for boring viewing/reading and is no substitue for real inter-action between characters. Thanks again. The block must move soon.

Okay, wild guess here--does Peter have a cell phone to call 911? Does he get put on hold, then waits until the limo with the hostages pulls away? Does he then try to follow it? Try to ram it?
