On Facebook, as you can see, he’s not always exactly, ummm, a wordsmith.
His first novel appeared in the early 1980s; and he has also written short stories, screenplays, and, recently, a stage play. “I’m why they have editors,” I vaguely remember him once saying. I also recall some years ago how, when one of his books was being edited by “some 21 year old” woman and evidently feeling his age a bit, he shook his head and harrumphed to me, “God, she’s younger than my daughter!”
Yes, life is indeed endless “fictional” source material. 😉
I started this “I think I’d like to write a novel” tease with him. I admit this little game is entirely my fault. But now he won’t stop offering me advice.
So now I just have to figure out how to get out of this “literary” corner into which I’ve painted myself. 🙂 Hope you have a good day. Happy Monday [grumble, grumble].
