The End?

No, this is not the end, my friend. You've been a wonderful audience, but I need a break.

What next?

Writing, of course. A novel. Something that will offend somebody.

I've written a few already, but I might publish this one. My wife would like that. Give her something to talk about, instead of having to tell her friends, "He's still sitting on the couch, staring out the window."

I might revisit a book that made the shortlist for Best Unpublished Manuscript at Adelaide Writers' Week 2006. It's about a predatory Pentecostal minister, how he came to be, who he did over, and how he got elected to Parliament.

Yes, that sounds like a plan. I'll be back when it's done.

Wow, Henry, you are ending on a high. I hope you find your writing satisfying. It can be mind-blowingly frustrating, demoralizing and poverty-enhancing, and then of course there are the bad days, but with your work ethic, passion and ability, you might create a masterpiece. Good luck.

Thanks, Kathy. All the best with your writing, too. We must do lunch again one day soon.
