Lunch Portion

I have no Internet or computer at home, so my only option is to write from my phone on my lunch breaks.

Chris sent me a picture message the other day. A local license plate that simply read "Finley".

I was the victim of a violent bug suicide...it chose to go out by flying directly into my forehead, stinger first, while I was on the back of a motorcycle. A week later when my eyes were still swelling shut, I went to see a local doctor for the first time. His name? Dr. Finley.

Yesterday in the course of my breathtaking day as an insurance drone, I ended up having a long conversation with a woman who is married to a fairly well-known and successful author. "Send me your information and I'll have my husband pass it on to his agent."

I have a hard time lately believing in fate or divine intervention of any kind and I'm probably experiencing things that are just coincidence, but, whatever. I need some hope.

And I'll start by hoping that fucking bug is dead as dog shit.

I would love to read more Finley (or re-read what was already here...I one of those people that reads the same books over and over and over because I love them)! Good luck with the agent!

You need to get a hold of Burn Notice on DVD just to hear Bruce Campbell introduce himself as Chuck Finley in just about every episode.
You know, just for the extra push. ;-)

Do it! And don't quit believing in fate of divine intervention or just good stuff in general. I would buy anything you write.

This is the first time that I have read your blog in over a year. I now remember why I was reading it. You make me laugh... and I need that this morning.

Hi, I'm Kate and I was a reader long ago and still think of Finley's story often. So glad you are back blogging and I would LOVE to see your book be published so I could find out what happens! Not many books stick with me but those few chapters I go to read of Finley's story sure has.
