8/28/07 — Writing took a backseat this past week, being filled with preparations to take my youngest daughter, Amy, to college. Car crammed with her gear, we finally headed off for two days of orientation. Very exciting stuff, both for us as parents, and for Amy. The inevitable goodbye was emotional, and we returned home to what is generally called an “Empty Nest.” We’ve decided, however, that we don’t care much for that term. Instead, we’re referring to this as our New Phase, and although we miss Amy very much, as well as our older daughter Kelsey, we’re also excited about the future and upcoming adventures.
For me, as a writer, some of that adventure will be right here at my desk, in front of my computer, working on STORM MOUNTAIN, and other projects to come. Climb on!
