Time for family, food and fun!


I'm taking my holiday leave a bit early and signing off of checking blogs and posting until after the holidays. Not too much of a big deal since I haven't been posting or commenting much lately to begin with. But the edits are wrapping up and my queries will be going out the first week of January so it's back to business as usual come mid-January.

I'm looking forward to more of a routine with my son starting nursery school two mornings a week (we're also doing a music/dance class together on Wednesday afternoons!). I'm getting a new laptop bag so I can drop him off and head right down the road to the library where I can write my little heart out for two hours straight, free of distractions, including the big one...NO INTERNET. That alone will help me write this new story in record time. Sure, I could go to the gym, grocery shopping, or even head home and clean. But that is so not me. Not when I could be writing. Nope, I think I'll stick with pursuing my dream! Four hours of pure freedom cannot be wasted. Maybe with this change of schedule I'll end up getting more than six hours of sleep at night instead of staying up until the wee hours of the morning to get my writing/networking time in.

Ah, January, I'm very excited to see what surprises you'll bring. Don't even get me started on 2010. This new year is going to kick ass for us all.

Whatever you're celebrating (or not celebrating) this time of year I hope you enjoy time with your loved ones and that you get to relax, have fun, and make some great plans for the year ahead. Ohhh, and eat fabulous bad for you food and drink. Cookies, ham, cranberry margaritas, champagne, candy, croissants....

Merry Christmas to you, and there is a little something for you on my blog. :-)

That sounds like a wonderful plan where you won’t have the stresses (house work, phone calls, people stopping by, etc.) of home stopping you.
I wish you the best of luck with querying. And I hope you have/had a perfectly wonderful break.
Happy writing,

Thanks for the follow, Rebecca. I think we share the same (dare I say, excellent? LOL) taste. I had to force myself to slow down reading Catching Fire and Hunger Games so I could savor them properly. I am LOVING Beautiful Creatures. Need MORE wonderful well written YA like this.

hello! Now you got ME fired up for 2010! My first WIP is also unrecognizable from last year--so much revising and learning! Good luck to you!
