I don't know how many of you are readers of The Onion, but there's a "columnist" there named Jim Anchower who always starts his columns with something like "yo, dudes, it's been a while since I last rapped at you, but there's been a lot going on."
Today, Jim Anchower and I stand in solidarity, because there's been a lot going on. Rather than dive into details, suffice it to say that it takes much longer to write a good book than I originally anticipated, especially when the outside world refuses to calm down and cooperate.
I'm excited with the progress so far, and I want to make sure everything is how it should be before unleashing it upon the world. I haven't even been updating the blog, both in anticipation of a new site, and in complete surrender to competing circumstances.
I guess the main message is this: Working on it. Will have a good book when it is done. Holding off on the website. Will have a great website when this is done. And I'm done predicting a due date, because I think that's what eventually killed Shakespeare. Or something like that.
Hang in there. Thank you for not arriving at my door with flaming torches and pitchforks. And, is a torch really a torch if it's not flaming?
See you soon.
