Sorry I have been more or less absent here. I've been working on my second draft of GRACE UNDER FIRE,  a German/Chinese co-production that's tentatively scheduled to be shot in English in early 2010  in Berlin and Shanghai. I got that draft out in the wee hours of the morning today and will probably notes on the polish at the end of the week. 

I've also been working on a couple of TV series pitches with some well-known actors and writing MR. MONK IS CLEANED OUT, my 10th Monk novel, which is due to my publisher very soon.  I'm having a great time with it. 

Outside of my writing life, I've had work to do as membership committee chair for Mystery Writers of America and president of my home owners association. So I couldn't justify spending three hours watching the Emmys last night. It's on my Tivo, but I doubt I'll ever get to it, even to scroll through. I've got two new MONK episodes and the premiere of BORED TO DEATH to catch up on. But today, with the script done (for now), I'm going to concentrate on the Monk book and see if I can make some significant progress this week before other projects demand attention…

  1. A while ago I tried joining MWA but was unable to open up my member account online. I kept trying, they kept resetting, we went back and forth. I had a neighbor try, following the password instructions exactly, making sure about upper and lower case, etc.–to no avail. I didn’t want to be a member if I were denied access to membership activities and privileges. I then realized MWA is the only author guild that operates behind such electronic walls, and I decided I didn’t care for that either. So I withdrew.
