anthimeria: Barbara Gordon, in wheelchair, hand fisted, with the word "Not half beaten yet" (Oracle: Not Beaten)
Holidays in retail + anthology deadline of Dec 31 = 1 tired writer.

Fortunately, I did get a passable draft finished of the short story I wanted to submit.  It's not my best work--I'm too close to it, and the deadline snuck up on me, so no one else has read it--but I enjoy it and am glad I submitted something.  There's another short story deadline in February that I want to work on; this one unfortunately I don't have anything ready for, so we'll see if I can pull together a story in a month and a half.  Right now I have characters and a decent idea of what happens, but no specifics, and without specifics it won't work.  So I need to keep working on that.

In the new year I pretty much want to keep doing what I'm doing, but with more hours a week spent on writing and on reading books.  I read every day--mostly fanfic.  While I love and adore fanfic, as a writer and just a person who misses her books, I need to get back in the habit.

Also, this week I continue to be thankful I no longer live where it snows.  Stay safe if you're in blizzard territory!
