Business of Writing 101, noon
Writing Novels: Story Breadcrumbs, 11 AM
Business of Writing: Knowing When To Quit, noon. (Yes, I know, there are people who think I should have quit years ago, but I'm on it anyway, possibly to provide a bad example.)
I may have additional events in conjunction with one publisher or another,but this is it so far.
REALTOR: Of all the houses on the list I sent you, the one I think you might like best is the one at 13 Nocturnus Lane.
HOUSE HUNTER: I looked it up on the Internet. Apparently there have been several gruesome, mysterious murders there.
REALTOR: Or we could start with 1255 Bright Meadow Road.
THE TEENAGER WHO RESPECTED HER ELDERS
PRINCIPAL: So that’s why we take Tranqui-Pills, Jennifer. In the olden times, strong emotion led to a war that nearly destroyed the world. Now that you understand, will you promise to take YOUR pills every day?
TEENAGER: I sure will, Principal Davis, I sure will!
THE COP WHO PLAYED BY THE RULES
HANNIGAN: The Ace of Diamonds killer and his victim could be right on the other side of this door!
GOMEZ: You can’t go in, partner! We don’t have a warrant or probable cause!
HANNIGAN: Darn, you’re right. We have to respect the Constitution. You want to get some lunch?
THE COP WHO PLAYED BY THE RULES 2: THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL (ALTHOUGH NOT SO PERSONAL THAT HE TURNED INTO SOME KIND OF MAVERICK OR SOMETHING)
THE LIEUTENANT: You’re too close to this one, Hannigan! You’re off the case!
HANNIGAN: Okay, Lieutenant, if that’s what you think is best.
THE SCIENTIST AND THE CLERGYMAN
CLERGYMAN: Victor, you have to stop! Man was never meant to resurrect the dead! That’s the province of the Almighty!
SCIENTIST: Gee, I never thought about it that way. Shut it down, Ygor! Shut it all down!
