The C-in-C, age 7: "I just noticed that when you first start to flush, the toilet makes a sound like it's saying, 'yo.'"

It's appropriate, I think, that on #WorldBookDay I have officially sent Tufa #4, CHAPEL OF EASE, off to my agent.

Madison author Michelle Wildgen​ talks about her writer's life in this interview. That's her work set-up at her kitchen table in the picture, which is pretty much identical to (though considerably neater than) mine.
This interview with Michelle Wildgen is part of a series published as part of our Working Lives Project: Making a Living and Making a Life in Wisconsin.

I guess everyone and everything needs to check with the planning commission.

The inspiration for my upcoming children's book, THE PECKER SHAKES THE WEASEL.
Though this looks like it could be a fantastic animal rendition of Jasmine's magic carpet ride from Disney's classic Aladdin, the photo is real and the truth behind it is somewhat more sinister. Martin Le-May, a hobby photographer in East London, took these photos of a woodpecker and a baby weasel fighting for their lives over Hornchurch Country Park.

I'm all for teaching kids to be organized, but isn't this a little extreme? And doesn't it sort of defeat the purpose of "recess"?

Yep. You're right. This is odd.

Nothing makes you dislike your villain like naming him after one of your grade-school bullies.

I'll have to go back through and check when I finish up the acknowledgments, but I think that Tufa #4 will be the first one in which I don't quote lyrics from any folk songs, classic or modern. It makes sense in context, I promise.

My wife, who is a good twenty percent smarter than I am, has some...inexplicable musical tastes. To me, at least. However, on her own she mentioned that this song made her think of the Tufa, without knowing that I felt the same. That makes it a rare thing right there. So see what you think.

"I'm a snowman who dreamed he was a man...and loved it. But now the dream is over, and the snowman is awake." (apologies to David Cronenberg and Jeff Goldblum.) Yes, it's supposed to snow again today.

We've got another winter storm headed down south. Our kids have used up 9/10 snow days and were off for two weeks. (First day was presidents day.)

This came out late Friday, so I'm re-posting for folks who might have missed it. At Tor.com, I'm talking about the least-appreciated character from TWIN PEAKS. If you like it, leave a comment over there, so they know somebody's reading it. :-)
An appreciation of Sheriff Harry S Truman, the unsung hero of Twin Peaks.
