Bogey On a Writer's Work

Doing research for my novel


According to Mom, being a writer is not easy. I think she's wrong. To prove it, I plan to write a book. The title will be "My Life Behind Bars". Interesting, huh?

Personal experience is important in getting the feel of a story. But interviews are the real raw meat of creativity. That's where you find all the tasty tidbits to tantalize readers. There's no one who understands being behind bars better than Indy.


















Me: "What's it like to spend time imprisoned while Mom is away from home? Come on, you can tell me. I need all the gritty details. All the agony, the loneliness, the angst. Don't hold back anything."

Indy: "It stinks".
















"Okay. Maybe I'll settle for a short story instead."

That's a dedicated author that would experience jail time for the sake of authenticity!

Bogey, a nice bribe...um treat...might persuade Indy to spill the juicy details. Promise him a place on the NYT best-seller list. Promise him the moon. And if all else fails...Lady volunteers for a interview about her life on the streets before coming to live with me!
