Another Christmas has come and gone – I hope yours was fun and not too stressful. Mine wasn’t too bad, a few glitches but otherwise pretty smooth. My biggest issue with most holidays is all the face-to-face social time required by the holiday. After over 24 hours worth of being around people other than my husband, I was dead-tired and longing for solitude. Such is the plight of an introvert…
I did get some writing done this weekend though, and two writer friends sent me wonderful books that I can’t wait to read. I also received an Amazon gift card that is being put to very good use funding my ebook habit. Now we’re on the slide down to the new year, which is one of my favorite times of year due to the fresh start it denotes for me.
This Week on The Variety Pages
Tuesday: Ch. 33 of The Biker’s Wench
Wednesday: The Four Things Meme (compliments of Gary James )
Thursday: My Year in Review
Friday: Ch. 34 of The Biker’s Wench
Saturday: Resolutions for 2011
You’ll be happy to know I finally got my Christmas cards done, and mailed them today. We’ll call them “interim cards” this year. As a bonus, I included my thank you notes, so it’s all done at once (and since I’m horrid at thank-you notes, they got done this year). I also survived Christmas, which is handy for my future plans. I still need to un-decorate this week – I can’t stand having Christmas up when a new year starts…it feels like I’m sullying my nice fresh start.
As far as writing goes, the only thing I didn’t get done was my suspense chapter, because I was just too worn out after the socializing to write on Saturday night. It’s all good though – the suspense serial doesn’t start until Saturday, so I’ve got time. I have just a little bit to finish on the Desert Heat formatting too, so I’ll order those tomorrow.
Goals for the Week
Two chapters for TBW
One chapter for TPM
