I hate moving. Absolutely hate it. Something always goes wrong, and the whole process of packing up a life and unpacking it in an unfamiliar place is something I never look forward to.
By my own estimate, I've moved over 20 times, one of those to another country (UK to US). When I told the other writers I was moving with my wife to Portland, I was told to "protect myself from identity thieves."
I'd never heard of such a thing, and I did not relish the idea of adding yet another bother to the long list of things to worry about, but then I realized, it's my job to know about these things.
