That my poor novel is like, "Yo! Where the fuck are you? I'm almost done!"
I thought this might happen, and in many ways, it's good that I am so focused on the contract negotiation and labor issues, but I haven't had time to even think about the story line. I have been doing other non-fiction writing, which is equally good for the soul, but somehow, I really want to carve out some space for this important work.
This weekend was incredibly busy with labor events, including the anti-Janus rally. (See the article I wrote a few months back. More to come in March: http://peoplestribune.org/pt-news/2018/02/billionaires-vs-right-unions-whats-stake-janus-vs-afscme-case/peoplestribune.org/pt-news/2018/02/billionaires-vs-right-unions-whats-stake-janus-vs-afscme-case/)
And now, my daughter calls at 5a.m., so much for my poor novel!
I just wanted to end with an image of me and my Union sister, Dr. Greer, who is fighting school closures in Chicago. I guess if you're not going to write a novel just yet, then write history for the betterment of humanity.
