Real quick: Since most of us who do the rounds on the SSS blog list are writers, and since this subject came up on one of my writing loops this week, AND since it's so important, I thought I'd give you a link to a couple of great posts (one includes a downloadable file which will help you in the short or long term):

Here's the link to a blog post that Neil Gaiman did regarding this exact subject. Read it, take care of yourself, and pass it on. GO TO GAIMAN BLOG POST
And here's a link to another great post discussing other tidbits of information regarding your intellectual property that you will need to pass along (or have readily findable/available) to the inheritors of your estate: GO TO COPYRIGHT & PROBATE PLANNING

For those new to this particular story, this is a story I started a while back, but hadn't really worked on in ages until recently.

Here's a really cool magazine-style excerpt for you to look at (I put a REALLY long excerpt in this one: It goes all the way into Chapter Four).
When she looked at him, he read a flash of irritation in her eyes before she quickly shuttered them with a blink. Upon opening them again, the cool professional was firmly back in place. “Hello, Mr. Taylor. Finished with the documents already?”
“Yes. I thought I’d just see how the inspection was coming along. Are you finding any problems that will need to be remedied before you can put the house on the market?”
