Writing mysteries, raising boys: Julia Buckley

Julia Buckley has a great post up at Inkspot about writing mysteries and raising sons. Read it and laugh. Or weep. Or both, since that's what I do on many days when I contemplate the next 18 years!

But believe me, you'll miss it and drive hours to spend an hour with your grandson.

If you don't already, I suggest you start reading the comic strip Zits. It focuses on the Duncans-Walt, Connie, Chad and Jeremy. Chad is away at college and Jeremy is the teenage son. Connie works part-time in an office and is trying to write at home. In any case, if the strip doesn't remind you of your own childhood and give you an idea of what's coming-I don't know what will!

Oh, plus it will make you laugh really hard.

I also recommend Baby Blues for just good time stress relievin'!

*sigh* I know, Patti. Trying to enjoy it creates almost as much pressure as trying to survive it!

Norby, I read Zits in the Sunday news, but I must have missed Connie's writing - the strip focuses more on the generation gap, Jeremy's reticence (scary!), and the state of his bedroom!

I love Baby Blues, but we don't get it in this paper - my parents do though. Do comic strips have RSS feeds?
