I guess there’s something inherently self-indulgent about weblogs. I sort of wish I had something more interesting to talk about than myself, but there are plenty of other bloggers doing that already, so, what the hell?

My wife’s ship deployed yesterday, so I’ve got all this damn time to kill. Based on feedback from several voluntary torture victims — I mean, readers — I’ve started what I hope will be the final revision of the book before I start looking for an agent.

That’s when the fun will really start here at the Lithium weblog: all my friends and family will get to see how many rejections I get from the lit agents I query! Stay tuned! (for the next month or so, if you can bear it.)
