While walking in the local park today, feeding the ducks on a lovely sunny breezy Sunday with my wife and two-year old daughter, I had some ideas for the ending of my novel. It’s amazing what fresh air will do. btw my wife said the other day that I have aliens on the brain. Heh.

I’m looking forward to completing my novel by end of this week. It’ll be a load off my mind, but also something real and tangible that I’ll have accomplished.
