Back at home with the NFL. But weekends like this wear me out.

The Jets game was a horror. Bad enough that they lost to a mediocre Miami team they should have dominated. It was how they lost. Sanchez seems to have reverted to his rookie ways, throwing INTs every time he had the ball. Santonio dropped a sure TD. I think the Patriots game has robbbed Gang Green of their mojo, which does not bode well for the remainder of the season, with the Steelers and the Bears coming up. I am starting to have flashbacks to the great collapse of '86. Rex, Rex, work your magic, I can't take that again.

As for Big Blue, well, the Giants thumped a lifeless Vikings team playing without Brett Favre. The defense and the running game looked good. Eli, not so much. Two terrible INTs right out of the box. And now we have to play the Eagles on a short week. We haven't beaten the Eagles in what seems like decades. Time to end that streak. But if Eli keeps throwing the ball to guys in the wrong color jersey, it won't be easy.

Dear George R.R. Martin,

Should I drop out of law school and pursue a career as a novelist? I am convinced there's a demographic of readers chomping at the bit for legal-leaden fantasy stories - why let loose an arrow against an enemy when throwing the book at them will suffice?

Yours truly,

I would keep your day job.

On the other hand... John Grisham's legal thrillers do very well, medieval fantasy does well, maybe medieval legal fantasies are just what the world is waiting for.

Keep your day job. Use it as inspiration and a wellspring of resources. If your writing is good and the story line hits a chord and you get lucky with the timing and the appetite of the audience then you too can be a financially successful fantasy novelist.

Let your writing be your mistress until she proves to be more reliable than your wife (job). You will still need to invest resources into her needs(Clarion courses, etc.). Otherwise she will leave you in time.

That's my take, but I don't have the passion of a true artist. Or the intellect of someone who can graduate with a law degree.
