Thanksgiving is over. November is over. NaNoWriMo is just about over (I failed miserably in my attempt to finish strong—hell, I failed to finish PERIOD.)
But now we have December to look forward to and the holidays. My traveling for the year is finished. I have a book to write, an idea for another I want to develop, gift lists to finalize and cards to send out. I just learned that a publisher is sending me eighteen (18!!!) books to read in the next month for the Stoker awards.
Yeah. Good luck with that.
I can’t even remember the last time I had a month to relax. To sit on a beach and not be plotting or planning. I sound like I’m complaining. Maybe I am. A little. I know how lucky I am. I have a wonderful family. I’m working at something I love. I’m even making a little money. But just like any other job (maybe even more than most jobs), I’m working. Hard.
I think I need a vacation.
On a lighter note--
Want to see the most popular video on YouTube?
Want to explain to me why this has 152 MILLION views (and counting?) Or am I just being crabby?
Now here is one worth your time:
Am I right or am I right?
Wow. I DO need a vacation. Or another helping of leftover turkey. I think I'm having tryptophan withdrawals!

Tryptophan? That explains why you've been so quiet at critique.
Also, it's not a perfect article, but this is one person's explanation for what the video is about. It mentions a number of things I thought of when I first saw the video, but the article also suggests a number of other points I had never considered. The comments are worth reading too :D
