You may have noticed that lately Sarah's appearances have been a bit spotty. That is to say, she may or may not appear on a particular weekend and there is no apparent rhyme or reason to her inability to be 'regular'. That's the result of two separate but equally affective influences: Sarah has had a tendency to go off on her own course, even though I might actually have a plan for what she's supposed to do, and it's sometimes difficult to work my way back to where I want her to go; and this seems to be an especially hectic time in my life, and in its hecticness, I've become very distracted and it's been difficult to concentrate.
I know. Excuses.
I think I need to let her take a little vacation while I get my life back into some semblance of order and, while she's 'off', I can write down a plan for the rest of the book. It's beginning to feel to me like it wants to spin out of control - and I don't want the book to wander. I have a target (just like her) and I need to start aiming at that target with more efficiency.
I don't think she'll be off more than a month. When she's ready to come back, I'll announce it here, in this blog, for the whole week before she returns. If you happen not to read me during the week - if you only come here to read Sarah, on the weekends, I will announce her return the Sunday before she comes back. So just check in on Sundays.
