Yup, still alive! I hate to say it, but work has gotten in the way of writing. C'est la vie!
So yesterday, at 1AM, instead of going to bed like a good employee, I decided to give myself a challege: 20K in 7 days. SOUNDS CRAZY FUN, doesn't it? My WIP is about 55% complete and edited. Now, it's a race to the finish line!

me: "I'll give you $500,000 for it."
