Yes, tremble in your chairs....I'm back.
I hope all of you had a lovely holiday and if you're still celebrating, I tip my party hat in admiration. Everyone who shares a roof with me captured magnificent treasure under the tree. My teenage son's voice actually quavered as he unwrapped his ipod touch. My 12 year old went into paroxysms of joy when she discovered a Wii game system. As for me? I now sport diamond solitaire earrings, thank you very much. All in all, all were satisfied.
I received another gift yesterday from Margot Kinberg, when she kindly included me in her list of "Inspiring Crime and Mystery Fiction Writing and Writers' Blogs". Look at this lovely award!
My thanks to Margot; and I encourage all of you to check out her blog Confessions of a Mystery Novelist, her knowledge and analysis of the mystery genre is truly astounding.
I've written a little over the past week, but I'm getting antsy to finish this draft. I'm hoping once the holidays are truly done, the tree put out for compost, the decorations packed away and the baking eaten I'll be able to concentrate and plow on to the finish.
All kidding aside, it's great to be back. I was surprised how much not writing these posts fidgeted me. Leave a comment and tell me about how you've spent the last few days. Were there presents? Or was there a movie and Chinese food?
