Yesterday I reviewed a ton of projects and discovered that my biggest titles are well in hand. A good time to go on vacation.Today, DC happens to be closed for a summer holiday today so I get to be home to run errands, do laundry, pack, stop newspaper delivery and…write. I just completed the sample chapter a media tie-in pitch and sent it off, my chief personal goal of the day. Now I can concentrate on the family, which should be fun. Kate will accompany on some errands, we may catch a flick and tonight we host a gathering of her pals so she is certain to see most of them before heading back to college as part of the trip.We’re making a swing along the east coast, stopping in the Philly suburbs, Hershey Park, Annapolis, Towson College, the Maryland Renaissance Faire and finally, George Washington University. Something for everyone.I’ve left a few posts to upload while I’m gone and will be back with fresh commentary and observations the 29th.
