By today, I should already be in Arizona, for my annual trip to visit family at exactly the wrong time of year to visit Arizona. Man, we need to plan these things better.
Luckily for you all, that doesn't mean a two-week hiatus for the blog! I've got five great posts lined up, and it's a nice mix of material; we've got a fanfic review, we've got some writing advice, and we've got some thoughts on how to analyze and talk about fiction. Having already read through everything, I can tell you all firsthand that there's some really exciting stuff coming up, starting on Wednesday.
And of course, vacation isn't just a time for playing cards and sipping scotch; it's also a great time to get some reading done. In the past, I've used a couple of "free" weeks to tackle some fanfic behemoth or other, and this year's no exception: while I'm gone, I'll be ploughing through Chengar Qordath's The Life and Times of a Winning Pony, which is one of the most-requested stories for me to review. Making time to read over 350,000 words is usually a challenge, but hey; that's just a bit over half of Fallout: Equestria, which I read on my first blog-vacation. Expect to see the review when I return!
But for now, everyone play nice while I'm gone. I've got a smartphone, so I should be able to check in on things while I'm gone, but I've also got dumb thumbs, so don't expect to hear from me unless something goes spectacularly wrong. Besides, what's the point of a vacation where you aren't getting away from it all? So with that said...
See you all on the 24th!
