Week in Review: ‘Tis the Season

I love this time of year. Which is weird because, before motherhood, I was never much of a fan. But ever since this little girl came into my life:


Christmas is pretty much my favorite!

We played hooky yesterday and spent the day visiting Santa, picking out our tree, decorating, and generally just getting into the holiday spirit. It was the perfect day. But of course, now I’m playing catch-up!

I’ve got some exciting editing projects in the works right now, and with NaNoWriMo wrapping up, I’ve been getting a lot of new inquiries about developmental editing – which is usually the service people need most after speed-writing a novel. So, you know… if you’ve got a newly finished first draft on your hands, let’s talk!

I’ve also been doing some writing of my own, both on my next book, and on these articles that were recently published:

I’ve been busy, but all with work I love and am passionate about. And that’s pretty much the dream as far as I’m concerned!

    Oh my gosh. Same. My dad, my mom, my teachers, police officers, books, articles and the list goes on…

    Instilled this fear in me.

    I’ve been “underemployed”the past 5-6 months, so I’ve had the opportunity to visit local parks a lot for walks.

    And this happens every time I see a lone male. Or a small group of males. Or a lone teenager I know I could take.

    I consider myself the most independent of indecent females and the physical potential for domination still haunts me.

    I’m pretty sure it always will.

    Oh. My. God. I am so happy about your cord cutting article. I just cut the cord three months ago, and I also usually spend Dec. with the Hallmark Channel playing in the background of life. There is a local channel that seems to be doing sappy Christmas Romances, but they are much, much worse than the Hallmark Channel (if you can believe that.) It felt like there was a hole in Christmas, but now it is filled. And now I feel ridiculous for being this happy to have a list of dumb movies. But still. Thank you. 🙂

    I also just wanted to thank you in general. Three years ago I found out I had premature ovarian failure. Now I’m a single mom to a little two year old comedian who I had via a donor very abruptly after getting my diagnosis. At the time, your story was the only thing I found that was remotely similar to what I was going through. I am very grateful.

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Embarrassingly admitting that we moved X into a booster seat before he was mature enough. He’s the height of a 7 year old, which made it difficult to get something that fit him when he outgrew the car seat. There have been many times that I’ve been yelling at him to get the belt in the right position. *sigh* Won’t be making that mistake with the second kid.
