Maintenance Mode is offline as I pursue the dream of The Writing Life. Watch for the release of my first novel, a murder mystery with the oh-so-perfect-but-absolutely-certain-to-be-changed working title of "Arrested Development." Sigh. This is the peril of not having Netflix or listening to hip-hop.
