The Writing Process
The last few nights I have been writing less and researching more. I am learning that the writing process is a simple one really: write, write, write. Writer's block disappears in the face of plowing on.
Cooper is changing somewhat these days as the distance lengthens between his son's kidnapping and the present day. The frustration of the search is wearing on him.
Cooper's Moon is really a story about a philosophy professor at a small liberal arts college in Ohio whose son is kidnapped one morning while he is teaching, an event that changes his life dramatically. His wife leaves him, he quits his job, and he becomes a detective so he can focus on finding his son.
Everything that happens after that is driven by that single event, the kidnapping of Maxie.

I've known you for 33 years plus. And our life is still a constant learning experience of spontaneity. Every time I think I've seen it all, you continue to dazzle me. We have lots more time for even more dazzlement -- is that a word? If not, it is now. In the words of Renee Zelweiger in the film Jerry McGuire, I concur: "You had me at hello."
