Is anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo next month?  I’m creating the outline for my novel this week - its called “Brautigan Summer” 
In the summer of 2011, Alvin Totellier has hit rock bottom. Without a job, and abandoned by his wife of 30 years, he is visited in his dreams by Richard Brautigan and Philip K. Dick.  Under the tutelage of the two dead authors, Alvin is given access to a cosmic plan to fix all the ills of the Universe - and there are a lot!

I love Bisbee - it is just a short drive from here. For such a small town, there is a terrific lot to look at - it vibrates with color. When I first lived in Southern Az. in the mid 70’s, Bisbee was nearly deserted - not quite a ghost town, but a pretty darned close.    By the early 80’s, it was starting to come back to life - lots of little art galleries, quirky shops, and really interesting people.  Now its a pretty vital little place. Clean, friendly, colorful, edgy in all the right ways, its really the jewel of the Southwest. If you are traveling in Southwestern AZ, don’t miss it.  

Said Notre Dame to the neighboring chapel: if you don’t like my flying buttresses, you can kiss my apse!
