I Love Jesse Stone

Have you ever read a Robert Parker? Won't take you long, even if you read every word of a book, like me. I just finished STRANGER IN PARADISE. Parker's characters are what makes his books. They are short, quick reads. So short, he has to slow you down. He places his short, often three word directions on one line, and the character's dialog that goes with it on another line.

What's with THAT? I hate that. But I love Jesse's clipped responses. I can see Tom Selleck glaring into his scotch.

Write every day!

Regards,
Mac
