    • Are you doing anything fun tonight? With all the problems I’ve had this month, I decided just to stay home. I’m hoping I can ring in the New Year writing a few new chapters – I know BORING!

  2. Hi Kathy,
    Happy New Year! Hope things are straightened out with your electricity. I was sad to hear this news. Thanks for all your help this past year. All my best. Liz

    • Liz,

      The electric situation is still waiting to be resolved. The electric company will be back one of these days to permantly fix it, but I’m happy as long as I have electric. I thought they would pay for the computers and other things I lost, but their lawyer called and said they weren’t admitting to any liability. So I had to put a claim in with my homeowners insurance. My main computers are not working. I don’t know how long that is going to take to correct. Thank goodness for this laptop. Anyway, keep writing and come out to one of our NJSCBWI events. We’re having a first page session in February.

      Happy New Year,

      Kathy

  3. I hope everyone stayed safe! I’m always worried about people driving when all the drunks are out! Here’s to screwing up the dates on my checkbook for about a month lol

  4. I was boring and stayed home. I stayed up until 5 am and got a lot of work done.

    • lol I’m ALways home on the Eve. The only time I got into that holiday was when I was young and felt like partying. I much prefer being home and quiet. This year was very low-key, take in dinner at home, watched the ball drop, then caught up on emails. Funny thing is, today I felt so wiped, you would’ve thought I had a bit of a hangover! And I don’t drink! lol Glad you got work done 🙂

      • It sound almost identical to my night and day today. I think I felt wiped out, because I stayed up so late and then I had a former website client wake me up at 9:30am wanting to move their domain name. I had to make some phone calls to get the information he needed. That took over an hour and by that time, I decided just to stay up. I ended up taking a nap this evening and now I am wide awake.

  5. Wow, he called you on New Year’s Day at 9:30 AM? That’s certainly not typical, but it sounds like you took it in stride. I wouldn’t have been too happy with him though! lol My hours are always screwed up and I’ve been a night owl most of my life (NOT good for your health), so for me, it’s typical which is why I wasn’t sure why I felt exceptionally tired rather than my typical tired, you know?

    Anyway, you know what? I read one of your previous posts saying you were hoping you could get a few chapters in on New Year’s Eve and how “boring” that would be. To me, it sounds like a piece of heaven! I can’t think of a nicer way to spend an evening since it’s been too long since I’ve touched my novels. I hope we all find time to do more writing this year!

  6. Well the holiday is over, now all the decorations have to come down. Doesn’t seem like I had much time to enjoy everything, but I am looking forward to finishing my middle grade novel. I’m really hoping I can squeeze in the time with all the work I need to do for the June conference. It is a lot of work, but so many people got agents and signed contracts from all the work from last years conference, that it keeps me trying to make each year better.

    Hope you can squeeze some time out of your month to write.

  7. Kathy, whenever I think of you and the conferences, I feel such empathy knowing you can’t possibly be getting the sleep/rest you need (I know what it takes to be in charge of large-scale events). I know I’ve offered in the past, but I’ll mention it again: if there’s some “side” type of job I can do from afar, please think of me. I can’t promise to say “yes” (having a bi-polar/schizophrenic boyfriend, who needs me virtually 24/7, has made my life even less my own), but if it’s something I can do, I most definitely will. Don’t assume I’ll say “no” until you ask 🙂

    And, btw, the conferences are so great, I can’t imagine how you can make them even BEtter! My experiences last year were fantastic and couldn’t have been more promising, though the ultimate outcomes didn’t end up with any signings. Maybe next time 😀
