I’m going to be taking a break from blogging until the 29th when I’ll post my year-end “report.” (That’s in quotes because I think we all know that reports are about data and spreadsheets, of which I have neither. Ha!)
I hope everyone has a great week and holiday. We say Merry Christmas at our house, but you may not. At any rate, a winter break is good for all!
I have a long list of things to complete before next weekend. #1 being Rebellion and #2 is figuring out which presents for my daughter are for Christmas and which are for her birthday two days later. What do you guys think? Clothes for Christmas or birthday? Spread them out? She and the boy have equal amounts of toys, but she has more clothes because she actually likes them and cares. Then again, she’s gonna be 2, so she doesn’t care that much. (I cannot believe she is going to only be two. Her nickname is sassafras and she might as well be turning 13.) #3 is wrapping my ass off, a task that I hate. If you’ve ever worked retail at the holidays and had to be the gift wrapping byatch, you most likely hate it too. Dude, you have not experienced the pinnacle of frustration that is wrapping a soup tureen with matching ladle. It’s been 7 years since I had to do that and it still haunts me. 🙂 #4 is get my Glow notes together. ROW80 starts on January 3rd. Much to the chagrin of my fellow writers, I’m not a plotter, but I don’t just sit down and write whatever. I know the beginning and the end. I have lines written down on scraps of paper all over my desk from different scenes. I compile and maybe I use stuff and maybe I don’t.
The last thing I need to tell you about before I start on all my tasks is this: Please buy a copy of The Cutting Edge by Darcia Helle today. It’s 99 cents. The goal is to get her book to #1 and show an indie presence. Also, all proceeds will go to charity. I haven’t read it, but did buy a couple of copies this morning, and it sounds great!
That’s it! Have a good one, guys, and I’ll talk at ya next week.
