Wait... Nope, not dead yet.

I'd like to thank everyone for the messages they sent. I will try to answer as many of your questions as possible.

No, I'm not dead. Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

I've been sick, but that's mostly just the random illnesses that my daughter (ie. The Umbrella Corporation) brings home with her.

Yes, both baby and baby mama are doing fine. We've had a few more scares since my last post, but my offspring are incredibly resilient.

No, I never noticed that I start to drift away from writing when Susan is pregnant. It wasn't until someone pointed it out that I noticed that the last time I took a break was when we were having our first child.

I think it comes down to having such a limited number of hours in a day. 24 isn't a big number. Between work, caring for my daughter, taking care of a pregnant (so very, very pregnant) wife, and maintaining my oh so many characters, I just don't have the energy to write a lot.

Yes, I'm still working on the book. Actually, I'm working on book 7 or 8 now. It's hard to keep track.

I just end up hating each story before I get done. It sounds so awesome in my head and then I write it down and it sounds retarded.

A couple of times I've caught myself writing books that have already been written.

I started writing a story about an office worker that kills everyone around him, but then somebody glanced over my shoulder and I had to go see a psychologist.

Related note: Apparently, everything is my mother's fault. If I have banned you or sent you an explosive device, you may want to take it up with her.

Ironically, if I now shoot everyone in my office, I have an excuse.
