    In fact it's on the rocks. I trust you're familiar with the sensation of withdrawal? No, I've never shot up, snorted, smoked, swallowed the little pink pill. My addiction belongs almost entirely to the mind, where sad things that I write about happen, and where I can get a few...

    What Title?

    Actually I'm writing a book with my mother. Neither of us has ever written a book before and I think it helps to have someone to bounce ideas off of. We started our book 3 months ago and have written about 3 chapters. It is slow going but I feel like the...

    Actually, I am researching it.

    It will take a year or more to do the research, then the writing. This will be much more fun than watching TV or playing computer games (or surfing EP mindlessly).
