Author Notes: I think my time is better spent writing my next post, so I do a quick and not always thorough edit. If you find some goobly gook please let me know by commenting and I'll correct it. Leave a comment if you have sent an email, I generally don't check my email for months and it is full of trash, but I'll dig through it if I'm told something important is there. A new short story, Vicky Falls to Vegas has been added to the I Wrote section, in the lower part of the right column. I discuss how I used short stories to discover key elements of my second novel.
