Obviously I haven’t been very focused on the novel lately—part of the reason is that it’s tax time, but the other part is that my mother (who lives in Texas) has been doing more and more poorly. I’d pretty much decided that I was going to have to move there, and a recent visit has made it clear that I’m going to have to move as soon as possible (i.e. after April 15, for none dare challenge the Tax Gods).
So I’m going to be very focused on all of that for the next few-to-several months. Hopefully once things settle down and there’s a good routine going, I can dive right back in and finish Trials!
