Waiting for Rain

We have been promised torrential rain, 5-10 inches in the Bay Area. We need it desperately, so it's technically good news, but they are attaching some scary words to it -- atmospheric river, bombogenesis -- so I'm not sure what to expect. I'm new here, but honestly when I left LA, I thought I'd be free of the constant drought anxiety. But it's here too, of course it is. We are living in scary times. Nothing is easy: this will bring mudslides and other disasters after the awful fire season.

Selfishly, I have just missed it, and I'm looking forward to a rainy weekend day or two. I don't need to run any errands, I have the tea all ready. My hatches are officially battened. But so far, nothing.

Writing continues and I'm happy with what's getting on the page. I am nearing the next stage, I do believe. Honestly, I could probably call it at this point, but there are a few pieces I'm avoiding, and I don't want to exclude them just because I don't want to deal with them. I don't think anyone will accuse me of shirking, goodness knows, but I don't want to forget anything. I don't want to have to regret or update or have given it short shrift. You could thusly never publish a thing, but I swear I'm not stalling.

I'm looking forward to having it all in one place. I can't wait to delete old files and early versions! Talk about the benefits of decluttering. To have it all said at last, what a relief that will be. What a weight off.

I'm Baaaack

I am alive and well, and thanks for waiting. You probably guessed that I put the whole project aside for a good long while -- eight or so months. I spent a good portion of that wondering why, but I kn

Still Here

Lest you think I've completely disappeared or given up...I remain alive and mostly well. I don't know much about writer's block. My blocks are so many, it's hard to say what's what. But if by "block"

How it Goes

Welp. Nothing really to report on the book, which feels like something I should report on. This is a process blog, after all. I lasted a little over two weeks and then adopted a cat I've named Emmett.
