9/01/05

5:32 a.m. Well, today I go to Bouchercon, a mystery writer's convention that is taking place in Chicago this year. It will be great meeting many of my writer friends from the internet.

Today I am also training two new investigators on their first cases. Which means that my phone will probably be ringing off the hook. Blah.

It'll be a jam-packed couple of days. I am really looking forward to it.

The HR guy that sat in on my interview with the Medical Examiner seems to want me to do PI work for the county. And a friend of mine has a sister who is a lawyer that wants me to do PI work for her. If I started the Polly PI Detective Agency, I would have a ready-made clientelle.

why not do it?

I second Jane's question. It's not often that you get a chance to do something on your own with ready-made customers.

Chicago, the best city in the whole damn country and my hometown. Have fun! I hope you don't mind me commenting, I just stumbled upon your blog.

Can you put on a Humphrey Bogart accent and wear a trenchcoat?

Depending on how much they offer you, definitely think about it!

You can get Christobol to write your adventures ala Snake. Heck, what am I thinking, you can write your own adventures just like you've been doing all along.

Go for it Polly. As long as you don't become "Stinky Polly"!

This is, of course, presuming that with your authoring, ME-ing and supervising you don't already have enough to do and have to give up breathing to create the spare time.

Seconds the Bogart and trenchcoat idea - with a twist!
