As I write this (a day late) it is almost Christmas, for those who celebrate. Almost the end of 2010, for those who might want to celebrate that. There were years, oh yes, there were years, where I didn't so much ring in the new year as kick out the old one . . . and good riddance to bad rubbish!
But 2010, thankfully, was not one of those years. 2010 brought me an agent and a grandbaby and I am thrilled to pieces about both of them.
The Rockville8 will be doing a bit of summing up in January, so more to come on that. But in the meantime, I leave you with a couple almost perfect links.
First, The Popcorn Dialogues, which is a podcast from the FABULOUS Jennifer Crusie and Lucy March. They watch a movie, then record themselves (and sometimes special guests) discussing the movie from their writerly perspectives. For a structure-hungry student like myself, it's almost as good as sitting in a classroom with them. It took me a long time to start listening to the podcasts, but now that I have, I'm hooked.
And then there's this animated Xmas card, featuring a poem by Neil Gaiman. It's not even almost festive, but I'm including it here anyway because I love it and because it captures something of my own personal mood this time of year almost perfectly . . .
Have a holiday, y'all!
Whether you want to or not . . .
