The three old men were long finished with their breakfast and were loitering in the corner booth with their coffee over a table of dirty dishes waiting to be cleared.

The Same Old Story, she is written, being read by several friends for consistency and suckishness (my wife’s already read it; not to keep you in suspense, she loved it). It’s also out to an agent of my acquaintance for consideration.… Read the rest

A couple of weeks back, I decided to pick up the manuscript of a mystery novel I had started some time back but which has sat for years untouched. I had about 21,000 words written and I reasoned if I wrote an easy 500 words a day on the book (on top of my ongoing paying writing), I’d have a completed novel in two to three months.… Read the rest

I’ve run a couple of pieces from a Superman novel (here and here) that I started playing around with, mostly just to get the words down on paper. Here’s some more:

In 2002, I heard the publishers of the Hardy Boy mysteries were open to pitches, so I wrote the following chapter (along with an outline for the rest of the story) and pitched. Timing, of course, is everything, and the editor I was pitching to left the publisher shortly thereafter.… Read the rest

On July 22 I posted the Prologue to a Superman novel that I started playing with last October for no other reason than I had the idea and needed to get it out of my system. After a lifetime as a commercial writer, it’s unusual for me to work on something featuring someone else’s intellectual property without there being a paycheck waiting for me on the other end, but, as I wrote when I ran the first part of this, it was a creative itch I needed to scratch.… Read the rest
