me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Okay, I've heard a few gentle inquiries about the photos I haven't posted yet. You have to understand the low level of my cyber-abilities, which are... low. I have to send update stuff to my webmeister -- webmeistress? -- and I'm so far behind with her that when I think about everything I need to ask her to do I have to go lie down. This is complicated by the fact that I can't go lie down: I'm in a stage with my new book where, having finished, I need to re-read intensely, in big chunks, to feel the rhythm, and the sense of the characters. (Plot? Schmot.) And I can only do that part-time because I've picked up a free-lance gig back in the architecture world, for the health insurance, which is a hard *^%@$*! thing for writers to get, even writers who are otherwise lucky enough to be making a living. I can go into the idiot explanation for that sometime if you want, but it gives me high blood pressure and then I need health insurance. Add to this a project for Sisters in Crime I promised for the 15th of Jan. and one for Mystery Writers of America I promised for the end of the month, and you can see why I went to Florida. To leave every thing behind and finish the book. Which I did.

But I'm back. And everything will get done. Including the photos! Because I'm tired of not doing stuff I want to do, like show you guys the photos, in favor of stuff I don't want to do. One of my other new year's resolutions is to work more and spend less time crapping around. Because you know what? I like work. And another resolution is to cut stuff out that I don't want to be doing. Stuff I don't want to be owning. Stuff that's just stuff.

So, that's my idea of 2008. And look for those photos!
