Ahh, it's been too long since I updated. In terms of writing, I've ... sort of put off my novel for a week. I feel bad, but I did do some location research i.e. I took a trip to Forest Lake to check out the high school, lakes, and general neighborhood. On the home front, I interviewed for a job at the JCC, celebrated my mother's birthday with the fam, and have been mourning the loss of Michael Jackson. Sadly, I did not win tickets to see the memorial in LA on Tuesday. But then, there were 1.6 million people vying for 17,000 slots. I should point out that not only was MJ a wonderful dancer, singer, and humanitarian, he was also a writer I found inspiring as a child. RIP Michael.
