The Accidental Vacation
I've been on hiatus. Unlike when the television networks do this to one of their shows, this was not actually a planned break, just one of those things that happen once in awhile in the writing life. Last week I moderated a panel at AWP, and as is the case with most conferences, didn't have a spare moment while I was there.
Since I've been home, its been wedding central. Since my daughter is getting married, um, tomorrow, life has been hectic, moreso because we had about three weeks notice on the nuptials. (And no, its not for the reason you think, her fiancee is being deployed by our beloved army.)
But I've also been enjoying life away from the computer. Shocking, I know, but true. I've not been on Twitter for over a week and I've been ignoring all but the most vital of emails. (Let's not even talk about the work projects I've temporarily set aside.) Amazingly enough, the world hasn't ended.
So all of this has been causing me to think, or Think, if you prefer. I have some ideas (or Ideas) and will be sharing them with you soon. In the meantime, I've got a house to finish cleaning before my sister arrives to stay with us this weekend.
