As if I don’t have enough going on, I just started writing Yet Another Book. This came out of left field today as I free-associated on some random memories, and BOOM, I had a title and even a rough plot summary by way of my trusty Pixar Plot Summary Template.

What sort of adjective precedes the word “writer” is TBD. Right now I am going to settle for “productive” and/or “busy”.
