The new year is coming, I'm rather enjoying this week of vacation with my husband, and after writing 3700 words yesterday, part of me hopes I can finish this novella in 2011. So you get a short post today.

If you've got a Kindle or Kindle app, you can get The Giver for $0.99 over at Amazon, December 30 only. I just bought it, meaning I will most likely get around to reading it one of these days, at long last. Thanks to George for the link.

For something like a decade, I swore off New Year's resolutions, but somehow this year I've wound up with a OneNote (ever heard of that MS Office program? I'd forgotten it existed) notebook full of them. Books to write and revise. Information on how to clothes-shop smart, rather than just grabbing the first thing off the rack that fits and is somewhere in the blue-green range that I know I can wear. An order to myself to warm up my voice gently and daily, so I can get over the vocal problems I've had. Stuff like that.
Down with the idea that all such goals are doomed halfway through January! I can do this.

Here's something for writers. Here's something for Harry Potter fans. Here's some Christmas music (yes, it's still officially Christmas. And yes, I linked LindseyStomp just a few weeks ago; she rocks.) And here's something funny (advisory: it's on Cracked. You've been warned.)

And now, I'm off. Thanks to all of you for spending time around me and my blog this year, and for your friendship and encouragement. I thank God for you all; I really do. Happy weekend, and may you have a very happy year!
