  • 11:11 Reading a published novel, but unable to stop thinking how it’d be better with the judicious application of a machete to the first chapters. #
  • 11:14 Remember, just because a popular published novel gets away with something doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. #
  • 16:50 RT @RachelleGardner: Don’t know much about publishing, but sending a query anyway? A MUST-read from @Janet_Reid. short.to/11zma #
  • 17:53 RT @Janet_Reid: Follow up post to "don’t know much about publishing"… 15 things to learn between "The End" and SEND is.gd/5H6NM #

  • 11:11 The best way to get all of this read (and notes written up) before next Monday would be to actually read it. Or so I tell myself. #

  • 10:41 In a shocking turn of events, I got less read over Christmas weekend than I’d intended. #
  • 10:44 People more likely to buy an e-book on Christmas day than order paper book that won’t even ship until the following Monday. This is news? #
  • 10:48 Since most of the top sellers in the Kindle Store are free, how impressive is it that Amazon "sold" them on Christmas day? #
  • 18:47 Recommended: Writer Jeff VanderMeer on "Paying It Forward, Paying it Back, Using Your Leverage" bit.ly/8olX0j #

  • 13:45 RT @RachelleGardner: #pubtip Writers: From now to January 4th, best to act like the publishing industry doesn’t exist. Enjoy the holidays! #
  • 16:06 Am I reading queries today? Yes. Am I sending rejections the week of Christmas? No. #
  • 16:13 @literaticat Having them in my outbox a few extra days doesn’t seem like a big deal. #
  • 21:56 @dianagill I’ll 2nd the rec of Highland Park as a great choice for the quieter end of peaty/smoky. #
  • 21:57 @dianagill Farther along, I prefer Lagavulin to Laphroig, as I find it more refined and complex and less like eating peat chunks. #

  • 10:30 I think I’ll pass on trying to clear my desk today, and just spend the holidays dreading the pile that remains. #
  • 11:39 RT @Ginger_Clark: Very gently: today is not the day to ask me to do some new, complicated project for you. Today is about wrapping stuff up #
  • 11:40 I agree with @Ginger_Clark 100% about that. #
  • 11:49 RT @RenovationThrpy: If you do deal w/ Pub. (w/out Agent) & Pub. tells you terms are best they can offer…and you believe it, you’re naive. #
  • 16:26 RT @RachelleGardner: You send me a query. I respond. I get auto-response saying I have to fill out your anti-spam thingy? Sorry, no. #pubtip #
  • 16:27 Thanks for the Follow Friday mentions @janetravers, @AbbiGlines, @Niyrak and @DebraParmley! #FF #
  • 16:29 How much reading do I intend to get done over the holidays? Umm….too much. #
