Where Have You Been? Bathroom. For Six Weeks?*

*A line from the very underrated comedy, Summer School, with Mark Harmon and Courtney Thorne-Smith. Well, it was funny when I saw it 25 years ago at the age of 13. So there!

Anyway, it occurred to me that I'd written two blog posts in the last two months. Weak.

But I have been hard at work on a new novel, which is where I've directed all my creative efforts. I'm about 80 percent done with the first draft, and I hope to type The End by the end of this month. This is the fastest I've ever written a manuscript -- I started writing the draft in mid-December. I drink a lot of Diet Coke.

I'm really excited about this book, and I hope to tell you all about it soon. But not now. I don't want to jinx it.

As Mr. Wolf (of Pulp Fiction fame) would say: "Stay out of trouble, you crazy kids."
