I’ve probably put 5 to 7 part-time years into the draft I’m working on right now. The rest of the time, the project languished in storage, lost (but that’s another story).

Peggy I don't have much to offer. I'm starting to prepare for a course on Shakespeare and am presently tackling Henry IV parts 1&2. I have 3 to choose from for the airplane Lullabies for Little Criminals, The Cure for Death by Lightning, Zadie Smith on Beauty. There are several wonderful used books stores in Victoria.
