File under ‘Fiction, Stranger Than…’

It’s 5 a.m. I’m lying in bed, thinking, “Man, I gotta come up with a new hook for Chapter 7. Something surprising! No cliche. Something the reader hasn’t seen a hundred times before.”

Groggy, I get up, shuffle into the kitchen, get the coffee going, turn on NPR.

“…staggered this morning by the news that the Pope in Rome is resigning!”

and I’m like: “Yeah. Okay. Something like that…”
