"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."

Capital Capers

I'ts my lunch break. I'm sending something out from the Cyber Room of the Legislative Office Building.

We're having a very busy and very controversial day. A huge mob of protestors and advocates stood before the capital this morning to welcome the legislators. People with signs, microphones, greyhounds on leashes. I took photos before slipping into a secluded side door.

Off to study the notes for my (gasp) maiden speech.

Wish me luck!
