My son, my slave-driver


The other day, my 4-year-old son asked me, “Dad, are you done with your book yet?”


He looked disappointed.

At first, I thought Anjula put him up to it, but apparently he’s just been listening to me bitch for so long that he’s picked up on the project. Now he keeps asking me how long I think it will take.

To make matters worse, I see that John Scalzi has apparently tunneled out from under the prison of ZOE’S TALE. Now I keep expecting Arjun to say, “You know, John Scalzi finished his…”

My new goal is the end of February. I am getting closer. Really.
