|and I mourn the fact it will not have a cover by Robert Maguire|
I mention the book for two reasons.
1. I like to retain transparency, so I'll share that part of why I'm going on hiatus is to focus back on the book. My personal life, work and a confluence of events have often kept me from spending my time just finishing the darn thing. I like writing, and I like blogging, but as well as re-charging my batteries to talk pop-culture when I get back, I'd like to make time for this project.
2. Wednesday evening pal JuanD was good enough to join me for dinner. He'd read a good chunk of the book as it is to date. I figure I've got at least 1/3rd to go. He's still got some pages left to arrive at the point where I've written to, but he made a heroic effort. He's read, I guess 2/5th's - 1/2 of where this is all headed. And then, he was kind/ brave enough to sit across the table from me and tell me what he thought and ask questions.
He did some things I really appreciate.
