A New Year and A New Project

I hope you'll forgive me if I'm not around much the next few months. I have a new writing project that, like a new baby, requires constant supervision if it's going to thrive. If you know me, you know I I've always been more comfortable in the world of fiction than the real world, and blogging, with all its need for getting facts straight and doing research and writing about things that are still happening and relevant has always been a challenge for me.

Which is why my next project is a novel. It's an exploration of the food system and what we can do to change it, told through the eyes of a very flawed and very not at all real young man named Adrian who shares some of the same passions that we do. It's been a lot of fun reading all the usual news on this subject and wondering how Adrian would react to this or that. This is, of course, not highly conducive to analysis or journalistic networking, so I'm going to leave that part of my writing life alone for awhile. I'll still be writing from time to time, just with less frequency.

In the meantime, please continue to connect with me on Facebook and Twitter. And I hope you'll read the finished product someday.
