mad jack

Just a reminder that I'll be doing a live radio interview today with Paul Strickland of KHTS-1220 at 12 noon, Pacific time. We'll be talking about in the path of falling objects and a bunch of other stuff. The feed will be live-streamed on the web at KHTS-1220.

Probably one of the most important characteristics of good writing, at least for me, is the author's development of reader empathy for his protagonist. This can be particularly challenging when you have a main character who's angry. Anger is such an unbecoming emotion, I think. Which brings me to this guy Jack.

It can be done.
