Sprouts

Everything is going well here. I'm deep into my final draft of "Madelyn's Nephew." I'll release it in about a week. I'm very exicited to introduce Madelyn to you. I think she's tough, smart, and funny, and I really like her. My favorite heroes aren't backed screaming into a corner by a threat--they recognize the threat early and then they prepare themselves. When they back into the corner, it's because they're luring the threat into a place where it can't get away. For me, Madelyn is that hero about twenty years after she has defeated her last monster.

"Madelyn's Nephew" is the first of three. "Madelyn's Mistake," and "Madelyn's Last Dance" will follow later this year.

My lettuce is coming along nicely. The sprouts are showing their second leaves today. I'll be transferring them out of the sprouting tray in a few days. 

I saw the trailer for "10 Cloverfield Lane" today. It's scheduled to be released March 16. I suspect it will be the first movie I see when I leave the house. I've also lined up a dentist appointment and a visit to the doctor. It's going to be a busy, confusing April. It's difficult for me to believe that for 25 days I haven't left a hundred yard radius (maybe less). It all seems so normal. 

Next winter, I may build a bunker like this
