It sounds like the SAG actor didn't deserve the "kiss" at the end, Mar. Now if I' been in your shoes, I don't have to tell you where I would have told him to plant his kiss. The diet book sounds like a neat project. Say, wasn't there a murder involved with an author of one of those "how to" books a while back? Maybe you could parlay that one into a mystery novel as well.


I also get the "Is this a business or a hobby?" bit around tax time. The only thing that keeps writing from being a "hobby" is that I take on contract work as well, churning out marketing pieces and so on. Hey, it pays the bills (some of which come from my fiction writing endeavors!).

Yes to contract work. I think it's why I write the "How to Write a Mystery" EBooks. The current one is about 20K words and says everything I can think of about including backstory in your mystery.

They sell and it makes me realize I know something after all.
