Don't is one of the words in the title of the latest William T. Logan novel, which I finished writing about a month ago. I won't tell you the whole title because titles can be stolen and this one is too personal to let out. When it's published I'll tell you everything. To the one person who knows the name of the title of that novel, please keep a lid on it. You know who you are.
The wife and I are working on the rewrite and edit. We're doing a few pages a day so as not to get burned out. While working on "Don't," I'm also writing the sixth William T. Logan novel. It has the word Faulty in its title. I won't tell you the rest of that either, for the same reasons.
I have quit my job at Willamalane and now have more time for writing. I also have more time for mowing the lawn, fixing things that broke during all those years of working, trimming the hedges, which continued to grow during all those years of working, spraying the roofs for moss which also grew during all those years of working, and many, many other things, which continued to need fixing or changing or whatever during all those years of working.
Now that I'm not working I see a warehouse full of work in my future. Writing novels is only a part of that work. But I love doing all of it, including the novel, and in the words of a great friend whose name I can't remember and whose face I can't see in memory, "It's all good." Which is another way of saying, "Any day on the top side of the lawn is a good day."
Ain't it the truth.
I hope you all are having a good time in your lives. And if you're not, do something about it. This isn't a rehearsal.
