For about the last 10 years, off and on, I've tried to write a mystery about a cave man named Og. Og's a hard working hunter gatherer who tries to provide for his family and worries a lot about the way second wife looks at Thag, who lives in the next valley over. I've tried various approaches. Nothing really works. I even tried having him take on space aliens. I was going to put him in last year's all Martian special, but the story just turned out to be crap. Og just remains a bust. I don't know what to do with him. Cave men just are not really that interesting. At least not any that I can come up with. That's the way writing is. Some stories work and some don't. And there are simply times you have to cut your losses and move on. I think I've finally given up on Og.
