Waiting...

The other day the doctor said our son could come any day now, even though my wife's due date isn't until August 26th. Being so close in proximity to the due date of our first child, I haven't been able to keep my head screwed on straight in regards to anything writing-related. That's not to say I'm panicking or anything - I feel quite ready for our kid to come - but it's to say that my focus has been a bit scattered. I've been helping my wife get the apartment ready for the baby while also getting our insurance matters in order, things that have been pulling the majority of my attention away from writing. When I do get a chance to sit down and write, all I can think about is the baby coming.

Oh well. I'm sure my creativity will refocus itself once little Nolan Bailey Alderman is with us. Any day now... :)

Good luck! You'll love being a parent (I have two amazing sons) and it will fuel your inspiration for years to come. Just allow yourself a little break to focus on this incredible event.

I tend to be a workaholic sometimes, so I'm doing my best to shed that and spend quality time with the wife and get the place ready for my son's arrival. :D

Best of luck to you and your wife David! Holding my child for the first time is a memory I know I will always treasure. All the best to the three of you.
