Perils of the Writer: Collision of Writing and Life

I'm quite fortunate, in that I don't have a "traditional" day job, and can write "full time", even though that's not really the case.
It's especially not the case in the summer, where my regular life switches up and gets very close to having a "day job".  This is when my wife and I run a summer camp, so obviously that takes up a fair amount of my time for the next ten weeks.

Which is a lot to keep me busy, and running the camp as well.
What I'm saying is, come August, I'm probably going to need a very long nap.
But I'll probably begin writing the books to follow up Alchemy and Import instead.
