Tuesday Testimonial: Down Time

  When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen.  But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can.  ~Samuel Lover, Handy Andy, 1842

I will not be unplugging for a week. I won't. I may or may not have access to the internet, but if I do sometime during vacation, you can bet I will be updating, uploading, Twittering, Facebooking, and, oh yeah, checking my email. Occasionally. A few times.
I don't play Farmville or Cafe Town or Underwater Rainbow Treasure Hunter. I'd rather write or socially interact. Or listen to Writing Excuses.
So, Tuesday Testimonial and Thursday Authorial will be short and sweet this week. I'm packing my laptop. If the internet must elude me, then I will edit, revise, write. In-between all the other fun stuff. It's a long drive. I won't mind. If you pass us on the freeway, I might have my laptop open, I might or might not be in discussion with my husband, I might or might not be tapping away on the keys.

It's how I scratch.

Have a great week! Hope you take care of that itch.
