I'm not dead...really! Thanks for all the messages of concern. Not even I can keep up with daily postings all the time. :) It takes about 2 hours to write a dribble chapter, and sometimes the day just doesn't allow for it. I'm usually just a little bit ahead, but I ran out of those as well. Work and family just getting the better of me.
No idea if the rest of the week will be better or not - the last couple of days have sneaked up on my time as well. Maybe I'll have lot of boring conference calls today and get some writing done, then. :)
Have a wonderful day!
