ah, nothing says the holidays like...copy edits???

Monday, December 28, 2009

This is going to be a short and sweet post as I'm currently neck deep in copy edits. But! I did have an amazing holiday, and I hope you did as well!

This was my favorite present--my mom went to a luncheon where Judy Blume was speaking, waited in line, and then got a copy of one of my fave Blume books, Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, SIGNED! It was so amazing. My parents are awesome!

What's been your best holiday gift this year?

Before I head back to the copy edits, I do have a few links to share:

Editorial Anonymous on how to tell if sales of your book are good or not--which is **must-read** post!--as well as reader questions and publishing myths (which comes with a contest!)

Over at Pimp My Novel, Christi Corbett writes about writing space and ideal vs. reality--great look into not just writing space, but time as well.

Alex Flinn on "So...what are you working on?"--As someone who is so superstitious about what I'm writing that not only will I not talk about it (and I won't. at all.) there is only one person in the world who sees all my stuff while I'm drafting, I loved this blog post.

That's such a great gift :) This year, I finally got the camera that I wanted and I'm super excited about having it. That was my best gift this year.
