Hi, my name is Tom Fincher. I'm a St. Pete native old enough to remember the green benches. I've been writing for a long time.
I'm working on thrillers that take place in Florida. Lot of action, adventure, humor, sex, and Florida folklore. I also try my hand at free verse. I've had over 20 human interest stories published in local community papers and also in The Times and Tribune.
When I'm on a roll I can write for hours but lately all I've been doing is staring at a blamk screen while the proverbial drops of blood appear on my forehead.
I have not been to any of the meetups, but I sure would like to one day. The only writing I have done is a couple of good poems, actually probably 3. I did a whole series on Bobby Fisher when he was in the chess tournament with Boris Spasky - a very long time ago.
Perhaps you are trying too hard at times. Kind of let yourself go - if you have had a really good start on your novel, it will take on a life of its own. It has to be free to own it. Just relax and let it come.
Thank you for joining the J.D. MacDonald – Travis McGee Book Club.
Your next step is to get the first Travis McGee novel – The Deep Blue Goodbye.
It’s a little hard to find, but Amazon vendors seem to have a ready supply.
Is there a venue you’d like to suggest the group grab a bite and talk about our first novel? If you prefer a beach spot, please suggest one that is south of the Pub. I also suggest downtown St. Pete and its immediate environs.
Looking forward to meeting you.
Glad you are back! And, Happy Birthday, once again.
The update on the conference is good and I know everyone will want to hear the details at the workshop. See you soon. --Best, Kate
ps I think I owe you (or Woodie's) for my toasting drink! Remind me not to drink anytime between 2-5 pm on a weekend because it obviously turns my brain to mush!
