Hello Holiday Mouselettes

So sorry for the scant and skinny posting this week. I'm bogged down with the most boring paid work: a compliance website that's supposed to be "fun," even though the content is deadly, so I'm spending all my energy writing "fun," but "very serious" sentences. That's for pay of course. Also, I am busily trying to keep my balance on the restructuring of the novel, which proves to be a big challenge. You know how that is, right? Every little thing you change, makes everything else need a slight adjustment in tension, pacing and even sometimes in character attitude. But it's all very good, and I'm happy to be doing it. Mostly I'm grateful to the encouraging persistence of Agent 99.  So, forgive me if I don't get as many rejections up this week; I'll try though. Hope you all are having a lovely holiday.

Those cookies look great. Appetizing, too.

Cute cookies! Good luck with your novel; sometimes they seem determined to be thrown under the bed, but there's nothing like holding a finished book in your hands that you feel is right. I've got two I'm trying to finish which is becoming a double bind, but I won't give up. These babies aren't going under the bed! They're going out there into the world...hopefully.
