Anyway, by the time this post goes up, I'll already be on my way to New York, to visit some old friends there. Then, it's off on my annual trip to Arizona to see my relatives. During that time, I probably won't be totally MIA--but I'm going to be accessing the internet almost entirely via my phone, so don't expect to hear from me. Besides, what's the point of a vacation if you can't unwind a bit?
Luckily, we've got plenty of interesting content for you in the meantime. The next two weeks are going to have a mix of reading advice, writing advice, and a super-sized author analysis thrown in for good measure. After that, you'll get back to some regular Chris goodness, courtesy of my post buffer. It'll be almost like I'm still there, except that the above-the-post bits will be less topical!
But when I do come back, it'll be bearing gifts (and/or with bells on): a review of some or, if I get really productive, all of Somber's Project: Horizons! So, circle July 18th on your calendar (or, if past precedent is any guide, July 20th). Be nice, and try not to make a mess while I'm gone!
...Oh, and here's a picture of Carrot Top to tide you over until I'm back. I know why you all are really here, after all.
I've never quite lost my childhood obsession with dinosaurs, so you'd better believe that the Natural History Museum is high on my list of things to do in New York. Also, Carrot Top is best raptor.
