Calvin P. Quenapril is a character who figures prominently in a
Fiction/Poetry Combo Collection that I’m working on currently.
I’ll admit to pinning my hopes for the book on artfully redeeming Q’s
irascible (at times even quasi-baleful!) temperament at critical junctures
in the manuscript; but in fact, I’ll be very, very glad when I can put
the project to bed—although Q might rightly argue that it’s he
who’ll end up “laying me low” in the end.
I chalk it all up to Scriveners’ Hazards, and meanwhile the book continues
to grow—one line at a time.
