yeah, i feel like I'd be fairly good at grinding out writing and I
have lots of ideas for books. guess I should give it a try.

it isn't that hard. and, you can only write a few hours a day, so sometimes you actually have time to do other things. you and becky make a pretty good swat team for big complicated projects ...
