Solitude - The Book!

I've been puttering along this past year on a new non-fiction manuscript. This time I'm writing about the value of solitude in an age of screens. (How to be alone. And why.) The writing life is a solitary one so I've definitely been living this book while working on it...

Anyhow, the first draft (or 10th, depending how you count these things) is finally taking shape. I do love the moment when you start working with a whole, printed-out manuscript. It makes such a satisfying thunk sound when you drop it on the desk and wander off to watch Buffy reruns.
