Happy 137 months of marriage to my lovely wife. Thank you for all your love and support during my long match up the 50,000-word hill for NaNoWriMo. It's been crazy, but I'm relieved that I made it again this year. Thank you for all your cheers and your gentle approaches while I'm in the midst of writing. We writers are a flighty bunch. We spook easily, running like gazelles when startled, and I love that you gave me space yet were close enough to make sure I knew I was loved.
