Vacations are nice. I sure wish I appreciated them more what I was young. Hopefully the little ones will. For us, we enjoy the road. Sure, we could fly over everyone, or slowly chug along on the train, but there's something almost magical about the open highway, with its brief glimpses and interacting with folk who have different worldviews at each stop. This is discovery fodder.
This trip, we're taking it to another level: survival practice! Camping along the way, living off canned and packed goods, stuff like that. Why? If you noticed, I added a WIP: Unannounced Zombie Novel (working on the title), and it will be 100% discovery. No planning. Minimal research. I'm bringing to it all of my useful and mostly useless knowledge while adding a twist to life experiences and my personal touch on the zombie mythos. And it's working. My CPs really enjoyed chapter 1 - even the one who hates zombies with a passion.
Man, I can't wait. I just hope we don't see this ...
Cause that'd be gross ...

Sweet! A few new members have come to see us off! Thanks, and welcome aboard The Cosmic Laire!
Be sure to pick up a cruller before you go, okay?
I bet I look like a zombie right now ...

Update: Our Woven revision picked up steam last week. We're well over halfway now. Had to take a momentary pause for some world remodeling (a fictional world's history can be a pain sometimes ...). Our third Scrutiny Session went well. Hopefully we'll tackle another 15k before I leave. Our August deadline is still a go!
Got vacation plans this summer? Does it include zombie survival training? How many crullers should I pack?
I'm David, and this looks like fun!
