The tofurkeys are stampeding... run for the hills!

Well, it's that time of year again. Sarah and I will be heading up to Massachusetts to spend Thanksgiving with my family. We're leaving in a couple hours, since we're driving up. Sarah's still terrified of getting on a plane. She's having trouble making this fear and her desire to go to Europe mesh, though. But anyhow... e-mail and blogging will be spotty while I'm there. But I'll eat a turkey or two for you guys.

I've also pretty much given up on the hope of completing my novel by the end of the month. I'm at a little over 11,000 words and I'm just not going to make it. This was just too rough a month. Too much to do and too little time to do it in combined with feeling sick too often and feeling tired even more often. That and my natural tendency to hate everything I do kind of led to my downfall. I'm hoping I can still run with this and try to continue in December and see if I can overcome my creative inertia. So we'll see what happens. I hate to lose and miss a goal like this so outrageously, but I don't feel like there was much I could do.

Sarah's gonna make it, though. She's kept on target the whole time and I'm proud of her.

Anyhow... Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. If you're travelling, I hope you stay safe. If not, I still hope you stay safe. It'll probably just be a little bit easier.

As a vegetarian and writer for the Wall Street Journal's Online Network, I'm interested in pursuing a story on what I suspect is a growing niche of food marketing -- "fake food." I think it might work well for the online publication, StartupJournal.com (www.startupjournal.com), especially if sales figures for this Thanksgiving prove particularly higher than previous years. The angle might be about how to break into this niche market and would cover the different products most in demand. I'm seeking sources who may have experience in the business of selling tofurkey and other vegetarian foods or individuals who are knowledgeable or big advocates of this market.

Best regards and happy holidays,
