Gonna give the blog another try. Trying to get the aging career back on track. The latest is that I'm charged up about the mystery novel I'm writing entitled the Shorewater Group. For years I've been writing in forms other than poetry -- essays, plays, short stories, novels, etc.. None of it has seen the light of day.
A few weeks ago Cin Salach, one of Chicago's best known performance poets, invited me to read at her Tiger Saloon. "Read something other than poetry." I did and received a gracious and enthusiastic response. Thanks to that audience I'm charged up to finish that god damn thing. Wish me luck
