Holy moly, it's getting cold out. I returned from Italy this week after a wonderful time there. It's awfully shivery here in Salem. I hope everyone's Thanksgiving and Hanukkah filled them with warmth and love. For those of you celebrating Christmas, doesn't it always sneak up on you? Though I've been away, I've still been writing, and this week I have two new blog posts out. Tomorrow, December 9, my new post for Writer Unboxed will go up. Then, on Saturday, December 11, check into The Lipstick Chronicles for my new post there. I hope you are all well, and find some time within these next few weeks to be present, and enjoy your time with loved ones.
