…but why is it that I get more writing done when I unplug my internet connection and can’t find my iPod?

I just finished a draft of my ninth Impostors profile. That leaves one more profile to go — plus a concluding chapter, plus assorted cleanup — before I send the whole thing to my editor, ideally on or before December 21. I think I can do it.

And with the text and sketches for S.V.T. now headed for copyediting, an actual Christmas vacation is starting to seem within reach.
