... it were possible to squeeze ten years inside of a day. I'd write a coming of age YA novel about a young man in the Black Panther Party in Des Moines, Iowa. Believe it or not, little ol' Des Moines has a rich history with this movement.
My father-in-law is visiting this week from Des Moines and he brought along a friend, an old-timer and one-time community activist. He was good friends with many of the Black Panther Party members. I asked him questions this morning about some of the old party members, and I'm so fired up.
I can't write the story. I have way too many things on my plate. But it would be so cool to make that happen.
Well, back to work.
