Just another couple of weeks of school and then I'll be out for about three weeks. I'm looking forward to it, but it looks like I've already scheduled most of the writing that I need to do in that time. I have a couple of articles due by January 1, and I think I'm going to end up with a couple more non-fiction items to do. I have worked off and on on some fiction but it will have to take a backseat again to the non-fiction, which has deadlines attached and guaranteed paydays. Unfortunately, I've been lazy throughout the last half of November, when I did have a little more time to work on fiction. As I get older, the energy to write long hours seems to be declining, and I've found myself doing more relaxing than is typical of me. I did get quite a bit accomplished yesterday on my Jim Sallis article. Today I have to work on making up final exams.
