I finished my big, fat post-apocalyptic novel earlier than expected.
I was stuck earlier this week — completely blocked. I just started to write anyway, and a couple hours later, it was done! At least the actual diary itself that makes up the bulk of this story.

Perfect timing, too.
I will be out of town next week with my entire extended family. I’m really looking forward to some time with my boys and with my wife. Bring on the beer, sand, and surf!
I will have internet access. I will check my emails a couple times in case anyone needs to get in touch, but overall, I plan on staying away from the computer as much as possible.
