Brief Personal Update

Just checking in with everyone...

There's been a lot I wanted to blog about this week, including some fascinating articles in the New York Times (Perfect Vision Is Helping and Hurting Navy and In Wal-Mart's Home, Synagogue Signals Growth). However, it's been a busy week for me. I've had two writing projects I had to complete, plus two spingboards/outlines to work on...and that's on top of my regular job, of course. Adding in the usual things that keep one busy in life means I've barely had time to come up for air.

However, I'm hoping that next week, before we go off for the long weekend, will be a little more relaxed. And I should have news soon of another sale, this one a collaboration, to one of my usual markets... (How's that for being cagey?)

On another note, thanks to a very, very good friend, gnomi and I now have passes to an early screening of Superman Returns, the only movie I have been figuratively dying to see this year. If I have time, I'll post a non-spoiler review next Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on when the blackout is lifted.

And, oh yeah, I ran into former governor Michael Dukakis on the T yesterday.
