The Writing Life

Well, I think I'll sit here and take my mind off impending layoffs by making shit up.

Not sure how much I want to prophesize potential series endings in chapter one, but at the same time, I'm a big believer in creating our own destiny, and these two characters are people who, well, *do* that.

Heh. Dunno. Might be too cheesy.

In any case, on to the last round of edits for tDW.

Well, hopefully if you do get laid off, you can maybe take a month off to get a lot of writing done. I'm sure you'll be fine and be able to find another job easily.

I'm of the grand old age, where I've come to realize where one door closes, another opens...where a job proves not as challenging as we had hoped, we're freed for an unexpected adventure...where a lover leaves us, a much better one is 'round the corner (albeit, you may have to walk down a very long, mirrored hall to get to her/him). I've enjoyed reading your blog lately, keep up the good work!
