Love Christmas! I have 16 days off and although there are many wonderful family activities and of course, skiing (and snowboarding), I have managed to set aside a few days to write. Currently working on Chapter 7 of my current novel and it is going quickly — which I hope is a good thing! No blocks (at least not major ones) right now. One of my commitments today was to be a cashier at a casino where my husband’s organization is raising money to repair a 300 ton steam locomotive. It wasn’t very busy, so I was able to finish critiquing my new acquaintance’s novel between cashing out chips. I should be able to give her the crit at Thursday’s IFWA meeting, so that will be a nice turn-around time for her: one month. Hope my crit is helpful.
