The Holiday season continues. It’s easy to dive in and enjoy the fun, the food, the frolic. Don’t forget—when you take a vacation from work (your book, your writing, your publishing), you should be refreshed. Are you … or are you feeling exhausted? And today is “the longest night” of the year … it’s Winter Solstice … which makes me happy—it means I’m now moving one-day closer to summertime! Have a wonderful long weekend. Happy Christmas to all.
