It's my tree, yo.
With a twinge of guilt, I must announce that...I'm taking a break from twitter for the month of December.  I'm super close to finishing the first draft of the book I've been working on for most of the year.  I need these last few weeks to finish, have a Jolly Holiday, and get started on revisions.  Kristan offered to cover for me (and she'd be awesome), but she's editing a really incredible story right now, and I (selfishly) want her to finish it.  No extra duties!

In the meantime, if you need me, I'll be here:

I've relegated myself to the corner.  And so far The Olde Wrytyng Deske is doing the trick.

I know you're sad.  But this is a good thing.  You won't get these mindless tweets in your twitterfeed:

But I will leave you with these, from the infinite Fizz:

Don't forget about the HUGE giveaway we're doing this month.  And we're still doing our normal Thursday posts, only Christmas-themed, and I bet you can't wait to read our Top Reads book list for 2012, right?  Right?  That's what I thought.  All coming soon.  Okay, love you, bye.

Aww, this is the saddest! These are like my favorite part of Tuesday on the Internet. Wait, is that weird and awkward? NEVER MIND I SAID NOTHING. (But yaaaay, good luck with the writing!)

Kristan said...

(Hee, Dahlia!)

Aha! So THAT'S why you didn't want me to cover Tuesdays for you. Well, I suppose you're right. Sarah knows best. ;)

@Mary...thanks for the encouragement, you are AWESOME!!

@Dahlia...Oh no! I can't let Dahlia down!! Don't be too hilarious without me around. (I know I'm going to regret this twitter break, but I'll have a book to revise so there's that.) xx

@Kristan...yeah, I know best. What's up. :)

Congrats. So, if you have to face a corner does that mean you also cannot listen to music while you write?

I have my desk in front of a window, but sometimes I need to close the curtain when I get distracted.

@Sarah...I have another desk in the kitchen in front of the window overlooking the back woods. Needless to say, it's a big distraction! I almost always write to music, corner or not. :) Thanks for commenting. Hope you entered our giveaway!
