I collect stories, I edit...
...I spend time with family.
I know for de non-writer, dis is boring like watching snail crawl.
I don't know if de non-writer believe that de writer life is glamourous, dat writers sit in tatch-roof huts on de beach, sip likker and gobble up fry-or-grill-'gator.
De truth is, books don't write theyself. I got to sit and write.
And listen to Ma chatting on de phone.
Right now, she and a' auntie in Canada talking about de murder of a lady from they village back home.
