Christmas

Hi,

this year Christmas seems to be far away although it is but a few days to go. My children are fighting each other at every turn and nothing I do stops them. So I decided that Christmas should probably be without gifts this year. I wonder if that will make them understand that there is enough love for all three of them to last them a lifetime and more.

Also I caught a cold and find it hard to concentrate on writing. I am working my way through the revision of "Victors Wut" (Victor's Rage) and the more problems I find the less I want to keep looking. This isn't normal for me because usually I love revision. I love it when the bare bones of a story fill out to something other people might like. To get my passion back I translated the first chapter into English (It will be available for download in my friend Anke Waldmann's Adventcalendar on the 24th).

I also made myself a cover. I know that the cover it will eventually get will differ a lot from this one but I like it so much that I want to share:


With my participitation on How to Think Sideways drawing to an end (only a few more weeks to go) I realize that I am far more tired that I thought. I had planned to start writing another "33 mistakes"-book this month but decided to put it on hold till January. I will concentrate on the Waldman-revision and getting the first draft of "Thicker Than Water" (look at the "novel information tab) done.

So with all that in mind I decided to take a holiday from my Blog and my Homepages till January (I got 3: women in forestry, the German translation of "No Rest for The Wicked"-webcomic and my personal Homepage)

I wish all my readers a merry and blessed Christmas and a very happy New Year. I will see (read) you in 2009.
