A Temporary Blackout Planned
The other news: I have to finish my book by July 1st. That's in the contract.
I was already planning to do this, and was on schedule to finish in another two weeks. But something about the fact that it's now here, in contract form, with money in the balance, makes me as nervous as I felt right before my doctoral defense: I knew I'd pass, I was well ahead of schedule...but I suddenly became hypervigilant about anything going wrong.
Therefore, in order to maximize the attention I have to give to the book in the next two to three weeks, I'm about to rip out my wi-fi card and only use it once every 10,000 words of decent text. That'll be maybe every two or three days. So I probably won't be blogging much (after a day filled with lots of writing, you don't necessarily want to unwind with more writing), and you can expect hiatuses in my email correspondence. So if you really need to contact me, either call me at my new number (email if you don't have it, I guess) or...well, try not to need to contact me in a hurry.
