It's almost the New Year

There isn't much writing or related activity going on in my world right now. After all, it is the holidays.

The Slushbusters have developed a couple of traditions as a group. The first is that every year we plan to have two meetings in December as we do in every other month. Then, inevitably, we cancel the second meeting because almost no one can make it due to all the other activities their families have.

The second isn't really a Slushbusters tradition, but it's starting to feel like one. Alison's family invites all of us (and a bunch of other people) over for New Year's Eve. Last year I was on my second flu-like illness of the season, and only went for about an hour. I'm feeling pretty healthy right now, so as long as the weather holds out, we should be good to go. The weather forecast is for more snow or the infamous "wintry mix." Let's hope it passes us by. Alison has requested I make my spiced pecans again. I will, and plan to add cayenne cashews as a bonus.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm pretty much following your tradition as well, not writing this month.

I'm being such a good writer-girl this year...still plugging away at those revisions every day! By the time we have another meeting, I'll have 5 more chapters. (Don't worry...I won't spring them on you all at once.)

Have fun at the party! I miss you guys and will be thinking of you as we fling the door open to the new year.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm somewhere between Michelle and Lisa. I've been working some, but not as much as I might have been.

Just popped in to wish you all at Slushbusters, a very Happy New Year!

Love this blog, yet rarely comment.

Must work on that for 2010 and stop lurking in the background :)

Quillfeather, we love it when you de-lurk! Look forward to seeing more of you in 2010.

Thanks, everyone, for all the good wishes. Happy 2010!
