“I have nothing against domestic stories, I wrote plenty of them. But they are no longer enough in the world we live in. I have to try and look outside my own fence.” - Edna O’Brien

I agree...even as my latest fiction project (which should - should - launch in a few days) will stay inside my own fence - only the second story I’ve set in Joliet.

Yep, launch. Because it will either make glorious fireworks, or just explode like a shoddy Wile E. Coyote purchase from Acme Corp. Tune in here tomorrow, as us oldsters like to say.
