Up comes the drawbridge


My plan all along, regardless of the outcome of the election, was to pull up the abbey’s drawbridge the day after the election and go into literary mode. I’ll start writing Symphony in Ursa Major, book 3 of the Ursa Major series.

Ken is here for the winter. He has a contract for his third book, which will be about the right to roam, a subject on which he wrote an op-ed in the New York Times earlier this year.

Horrible as the political situation is, I have to take a break from politics and take refuge in novel-writing, a process that I actually have come to enjoy and look forward to. In April, my two-year term as Democratic chairman for my county expires. I’ll probably accept another term, if they want me. I will return to politics to fight another day.

I’ll also continue to post to the blog, though I hope to steer clear of politics for a while.

I’d give credit for the photo except that I don’t know its source. If anyone knows the source, please let me know in a comment.
