So I haven’t been blogging for awhile, mostly because shortly after my last post I received notes back from my editor, and have been spending much of my not-at-work time working on my novel and little-to-no time on other things like keeping up with yardwork or grading or eating right or blogging.
But I sent the manuscript back this week and am looking forward to getting back into the blog swing of things. I already know what my next post will be about: cats. Our cats. I don’t have any actual data on this, but in my little mind I imagine something like sixty-two percent of all blog posts are about people’s cats. In some the cats are metaphorical, but in some the cats are just cats.
P.S. The big news since my last post is that my wife, Liz, and I have learned that we’re going to be parents. We (possibly) learn the sex this coming week, and have names (first and middle) picked out for either possibility. If I knew how to upload the grainy black-and-white photo from the freezer door to this webpage, I would.
