This is me, finishing Silksinger. (not yet -- over the next few weeks, I hope.) See how relaxed I look? I know, I'm one cool cucumber. AND I wear a corset to write, like a real lady. Okay, so: not really. But I am a writing fury right now. FINISHING.
What a glorious word.
I want my birthday present to myself this year (I'm almost a Christmas baby) to be: a finished manuscript! Last year I had a wonderful languid holiday month of making cookies and decorating and giftwrapping. I love all that, but this year, sadly, I won't be able to do so much. It's all about Silksinger. You know how there are times when you realize how much you are capable of, and you rise to the occasion and overwhelm yourself with your own inner strength? I'm hoping this is one of those times!
Speaking of real cool cucumbers, check out Agatha Christie at work.
Doesn't she make it look easy?

P.S. My editor called today to let me know we have an offer for the Vietnamese rights to Blackbringer. How cool is that???
And check it out: Liz at A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy, just reviewed Blackbringer. Thanks, Liz!
