Closing in on Christmas

Not being a religious fellow myself, the whole "holiday season" really only means "more time to write". Which I definitely appreciate!

It usually, however, also means "more time spent with family", which is often somewhat (or very) unpleasant. I love my family, but we agree on almost nothing overall and our gatherings tend to quickly devolve into long arguments of one stripe or another.

But, if that's the price I have to pay to have the time to finish up another book (and maybe read a few in the down time between arguments), then I suppose it's all okay in the end.
