I've been experimenting, and I think I like it.

About ten or so years ago, while I was in college, my other half bought me a funny little button pin from a little used bookstore. What was on it--C.P.A. (for Certified Public Assassin)--sparked an idea for a story. I wasn't sure if it would be a short story or novel. I tried several times to find the right way to write the character.

After I read John Ringo's The Last Centurion, I think I found it. I'm also doing a bit of a blog to go with it, just to help me get the character right in my head before I write the actual book. The blog is Molly McGuire's Mumbles and Mutters. The first post, introducing the character and her life, is here.

Y'all can go read if you want.

    Excellent creation--keep goin' with it!

    I've been writing "fiction" since grammar school when my aunt
    (a journalist) gave me her OLD
    Royal typewriter.

    Like minds: I have just resurrected my THUMBNAIL PASSION PLAYS, done back in 2004.

    I have reposted, SNOWBLACK

  2. Thanks. I read the "This is your life" thing you did with Bush--I wasn't sure whether to giggle, or cringe: Bush may not have been a good president, but the others you named (Kerry, Gore, and the Clinton spawn) would have been far worse.

  3. WAY BACK IN 2004, I supported
    Kerry and I didn't like Bush--didn't like Kerry much either!

    It was that election that I realized that being a dummycrat or goppisers was dumb.

    It's the ISSUES that count.

  4. Agreed, my friend. I vote for the candidate who I agree with on platform the most and dislike the least.
