Not Exactly a Vacation-Break

NotMakingThisUp will not be published this week and possibly next, owing to the fact that we are meeting a deadline for a book.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that anyone familiar with book deadlines would understand that the proximity of that date is less suitable for good writing than it is for, oh, drug overdosing and other misery-ending procedures.
