octo1Busy keeping my butt in a seat this week before Christmas (see everything Anne Lamott has ever written about the writing process). My son is under-the-weather, and while his feeling sick is not great, we are taking advantage of the downtime: he is reading A BOOK, I am writing page 45 of my 3rd MG novel. Keeping on with the keeping on as Christmas looms with, hopefully, Christmas Eve tamales, Christmas crackers stuffed in paper hats and wind-up toys, copious amounts of gingerbread coffee, beach time, and a new pair of slippers (the kind with backs on them–I don’t understand backless slippers–what about frozen heels?).

Yours in procuring writing time before holiday madness fully arrives,
