"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

Filing Fling

I'm a woman of my word.

When I was urged to be a candidate for public office, I agreed to do it. (I did it once before.) The filing period started yesterday and ends in less than 10 days.

The filing fee is a whopping $2.00.

So, following my usual tradition, I emptied my piggy bank. I've got 12 dimes, 6 nickels, and 2 quarters. I may not be a whiz at maths, but according to my repeated calculations the total is exactly the two bucks I need.
