Briefly, before the year ends

You! You, my readers, are too wonderful for words. Even the wacky comments I received on my last post--which were gloriously few and far between--were heartfelt and sweet. I love you all. You, especially. Yes, you, the one reading this. Come here. I shall give you a noogie. An affectionate one.

I have been posting sporadically at best for the past few weeks, and I intend to further try your patience as Eden and I hurtle toward our ever-nearing book deadline. Apparently when you get a book deal, you are then expected to write the book. Yikes. So as you can imagine, my brain has been pretty busy with that whole thing. Which is nice. I mean, for me. Maybe not for you, so much, yet. (Could that sentence be any more awkwardly constructed?) But just you wait.

I am taking a break from Finslippy until the holidays are over, so that I may wrap presents and strew tinsel on things. And stop worrying that I have nothing to write on my blog and my readers are expecting something and they deserve something good because they are so freaking wonderful.

Happy everything, and I will see you in the new year!

Happy Christmas :) Long time reader, first time commenter here (Ha! always wanted to say that).. and I just wanted to say: thanks for your frank and honest (and funny! so very funny) outlooks. I personally connected with you (like so many other women) through the story of your miscarriage. Your words may as well have been my words. Thank you for saying things that I have only been able to feel.Can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for you!

Happiest of holidays. And may the tinsel you strew never need vacuuming. (If you do find such self-vanishing tinsel, please write.)

Enjoy your time off, lady. It's very well-deserved.

(Although of course you'll be needing to prove just how productive you've been with your time off come January. The first 400 pages or so of your manuscript will do.)

Happy New Year!

I find myself with a few weeks off here at the end of 2009 and decided to go visiting my old bloggy haunts. Thinking of taking it up again myself, the blogging thing. So I dusted off my Google Reader and stopped by to say Happy New Year. When you write, I'll be here to read. It's always satisfying, like a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning.

Be well!
