I'm ready for Christmas! :-) This year I sent out some cards (a first for me), and streamlined my present-buying (also a first).
In the writing department, I sent out my novel submission for _Watch Over Me_ to Muse It Up Publications. I finally had it ready to send and didn't want to wait till after Christmas.
I also finally updated my website (http://sites.google.com/site/aliceroelke/) to reflect the fact that I'm having a novella published next May, and show off the lovely cover art that Delilah K. Stephans (http://www.delilahkstephans.com) made for me!!
I feel accomplished. That's nice for a change! :)
I've made some plans for next year already, but I'll have to try not to get carried away with it. Making too many plans can become counterproductive for me.
Oh, and in the reading department, I'm enjoying Daily Science Fiction. (http://dailysciencefiction.com/) They send emails every day with a short science fiction or fantasy story. Some days I ignore them, other days I get pulled into reading them. They keep them short and readable, which is nice for a quick break. I'm impressed with the quality of the ones I've read so far.
