A blogging milestone & Merry Christmas

Wow! As of last week, I've been blogging for one year. Thanks to everyone who's stopped by to read, quietly lurk, or comment. Having you around makes me feel as though I'm sharing my office with a group of incredibly well behaved co-workers!

At the moment, though, work must wait. I have company and I'm reverting from "author" to "hostess" although I did spike the punch bowl in an effort to stir up my guests and stimulate some dialogue I can borrow for a future novel. Oh, and I also cornered my 85 year old father-in-law this afternoon to grill him about life in the 50s so I have the most authentic POV possible for my next protagonist. Hmmm... Maybe work doesn't have to wait. Maybe it can be incorporated right into the holidays.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas, Holly and family.
Loving the blog and makes me feel like I know whats going on with you and your amazing writing. Loved Pat Woods book and she sent me a nice email, saying,"I know exactly who you are!". Still writing, with thanks to the two of you and others, and wish you a lovely new year. Blessings, Lindsey in Hawaii

I'm found your blog by way of reading The Tin Box and now I pop by all the time. Your "voice" makes me feel like I've met a new friend. You have such a lovely tone to your posts/stories/novels. I will be back often in 2008!!!

All is fair in love and research.

Have a rest and get yourself all fresh and creative for writing that next novel. Our book club is waiting for it!

Aren't family conversations over Xmas hilarious? At our place, we don't have to spike the punch. Punches seem to fly anyhow, sometimes verbal, sometimes physical *lol*
