I’m working. Bacon went back to his temporary (but wants it to be permanent) job today. The girls are in school. I had house guests all last week. Now, I have the house to myself, and I’m bursting to write. I’m posting two links that really hit me. The first fits in the believe it or not category. A middle school principal threatened to kill (that’s what the police documents say) his 8th grade science teachers if they didn’t raise test scores. The antagonist in my current Work in Progress (WIP) is a school administrator gone bananas. Every time I talk about this plot line, listeners give me the that could never happen look. Here it is: http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/metro/stories/MYSA032608.nbprincipal.EN.22ebced.html I loved the quote, “You don’t know how ruthless I can be.” The second link is a short film called George Lucas In Love found here: http://digg.com/lbv.php?id=5050171&ord=0 My big brother sent me this link. It’s fabulous. Inspiration is all around us.

Honey, you want crazy principal stories – I got ’em.
Mary, I would love to hear them. Sounds like a girls night out story! Liz
