Also, it's not entirely true that I won't be writing at all.
My spouse and I are working on a screenplay together for fun, so we will do some work on that, and the plan is to have a few morning hours for creative work every day, since we are both devoted writers. I'm developing the new book on disinheritance, which is coming along nicely; I'm mostly in the research phase. The idea is to create a wide pop-culture, literary scope on the topic, but it also includes my own memoir-ish thread on being given the boot by my father. Basically, it's an exploration, both cultural and personal. It's weird to be writing something that's actually marketable, but I believe that's what's happening here. I'll keep you posted as it evolves.
I will also post any rejections I get for the novel and essays; I expect those to start rolling in momentarily.
