Eugene Ionesco said, A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing.
Well... I am thinking about having a vacation, but I keep toiling over the details -- here or there, kids or no kids -- and all this while I'm working out the beginning to something new. And really big.
I suppose I really should get away for at least a little while, so I'm determined to come up with a concrete plan of escape by this time next week.
