It's only days away and I still have several things to do. I think we're farther behind this year than ever before. Still have cookies to bake, buckeyes to dip in chocolate, presents to wrap (not to mention a few yet to buy) it just seems like it snuck up on me this year.
I think part of it has to do with the fact it's like 50 degrees here. That is way weird for Indiana. I need snow, people. There's just something about looking at the clean white snow on Christmas morning to put you in the holiday mood.
On a writing note, I heard back from the editor about my book Prescription for Murder. She liked the proposal. She gave me a few editorial suggestions and asked me to send her the complete. I'm currently working on those changes and hope to get it back to her in a couple weeks. It was so fun to hear from her. I fully expected to get a rejection, which I still might, but at least the story intrigues her enough at this point. That's something, I guess. ;)
Also, I had the chance to get together with two of my writer friends this week. We don't have as much time to do that as we'd like. It was a fun refreshing time to reflect on our writing accomplishments for 2006 and our goals for 2007. I came away feeling refreshed and ready to plow into those goals. Why do we keep ourselves so busy we don't have more time for these special moments?
Finally, I'm working on a top ten books for 2006 this week. I will be posting that next weekend. Hope you'll stop by to see if one of your favorite books might be on the list. Until then, have a very Merry Christmas!!!
