When the hell did that happen?
So, I have no holiday shopping done, no plans other than taking time off between the 22nd and Jan. 2nd and getting Guardian Angel ready for my beta readers before the fat man in red drops down my non-existent chimney. So far, the only thing I'm on track with is getting Guardian done before Christmas.
If I don't get cracking on the shopping soon I'd better find a nice hole to hide in.
My newsletter is out (with a sneak peek at the unedited Howl For Me), and WriteWay is working nicely as an editing tool. I'm looking forward to writing a brand new book with it and seeing if it works as well for that. I'm thinking it will, since I plot AND pants my way through a book. I can do spur-of-the-moment thoughts on chapters I haven't even written yet, something I've always used MS Notepad for and then promptly lost.
So November was busy, and December is looking to be the same. I've got the outline done for The Hob, and will start work on that as soon as the holidays are over. I'm hoping to have it completed by the end of March, at which time I'll start work on Throne of Oak. I've got a lot done this week, and it's not over yet!
Wait. Tomorrow is Friday?
