The Writer Develops Tunnel Vision

I have become totally consumed by my novel. I guess that is a good thing, what a novelist should aspire to, right? Not only have I jumped head first into my research, planning and actual writing, but I am refreshing my grasp of the Italian language. No one in my family speaks it and it is a mark of pride for me that I do, so I do not want to lose it through laziness and lack of practice. Ci vediamo!

Other news: well, not much, as I just said that I am consumed by my novel :) Actually, the Good Life editor offered me the opportunity to write a follow up on my domestic violence feature. After a bit of a rest, I am going to take him up on it. Exciting!

Congratulations on the offer of a follow up article. If it's anywhere near as good as the original, it should be well worth reading.

Obsessive is, of course, a perfectly normal state of being for the novelist.
