I don't know about you, but I'm a great believer in rewarding myself for major accomplishments, such as writing books, finding the same person fascinating after 20 years, having a MAJOR birthday, etc.
Consequently, I'm taking myself off tomorrow to a "Writers' Spa" in Taos, NM, at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House (a large adobe pile she had built in the '20s and '30s, where she established a literary colony, with D. H. Lawrence as its rather questionable lodestar).
I'm excited about just being there, but I get that I'm expected to write, too, so I'm working on my next book (a book of essays, working title, Some Restrictions May Apply. I promise to tell all when I return).
And don't forget to work on that self-rewarding thing.
