Filed under: Blog — Roman @ 1:20 pm

At the Apple Store in Boston the other day, a friend and I were told that Apple doesn’t make laptops anymore. There is a clear initiative to rebrand the computers as “portables” as putting them on your lap, or watching a movie in bed causes them to overheat. News to me. (more…)

I am done now with my second revision. 108 pages and it’s starting to congeal. Still some pretty big problems that need to be addressed, namely creating the ever-important psychological depths my characters need to go from entertaining to interesting.

After David Day, I got a pretty sick doggie bag to take home, including a pint of lobster salad. More sea tick than I’ve eaten in a year!!

Yummy!
