    More like a herring bone caught in the esophagus. He says he has ideas but he is unsure he can get them out lyrically enough. He should write them down anyway and work on their lyricism later. Ideas, outlines then write. Writing down ideas is paramount. You don’t dare lose them. They may never come back.

    Only once has the ending come to me first, then the rest of it.

    Now he can write a book about his phony baseball career to go along with his phony Afghan story.

    Think maybe Jeff represents one aspect of Trudeau’s own personality? I’m a commercially published book author, and I sometimes have feelings exactly like Jeff’s. And I know exactly what writer’s block is. It’s easy for armchair critics to scoff ignorantly at Jeff. These problems are real and and they are common. Even though Trudeau is extremely successful, he may still be expressing these concerns through the fictional character of Jeff Redfern.


    Also through Jeff’s father, Rick Redfern, who’s also a writer. Genetics (or nature) + environment (or nurture) = the way a person turns out in life.

    Didn’t he come up with whole Red Rascal thing to avoid getting sacked from his job? It’s all about finding the right motivation.

    Maybe he should dump the Red Rascal and create the Blue Bounder/

    Anyone could’ve seen the writer’s block excuse coming from a mile away…

    Don’t blame Jeff, Afghanistan and Iraq have been pumped dry, despite General McCrystal’s book, and with Willard’s loss, another war in the near future seems unlikely. Maybe Jeff,like Depredieu, should try moving to Moscow.

    genotype + environment = phenotype

    That Walden liberal arts education is really paying off for that pair of Faulkups.

    Red Rascal back story from … when he … played in Cincinnati. Yeah, that’s right, … where he got his nickname. That’s the ticket.

    I somehow doubt the war has been pumped dry of ideas. They’re still milking the Civil War, and that only lasted… well, okay, maybe it’s still going on, but my point stands.
