We Apologize for the Wait . . .

But this quarter is turning out to be one of the most hectic and time consuming academic terms in my professional career.

I am teaching from 9:00 AM to 10:15 Monday through Thursday, 10:30 to 11:45 Monday through Thursday, 12:00 to 1:15 Monday through Thursday, 2:00 until 4:30 Monday and Wednesday afternoons, and 5:30 to 6:45 Monday and Wednesday (hell, it's even tiring just writing all that). Three of these five courses and composition intensive (I'm quite literally grading papers every week, usually Tuesday and Thursday afternoons).

Understandably, when I'm at home on the weekends, I don't even want to look at the computer screen unless there are aliens or medieval monsters on it trying to kill one of my virtual avatars.

All this to say that, I have not forgotten you all. I do intend to finish the Roanoke story (if for no other reason that Jim and I are traveling up to Bowling Green, Kentucky next month, and I'm sure there's a story in there somewhere, too). I have other things I'm aching to tell you all, too ( for one thing, I'm giving serious thought to releasing some of my short stories in book form if there's any demand out there for it).

All I ask is that you all bear with me a little. I'll get back here when I can, as soon as I can.
