Happy New Year!
I've been spending less time online lately, but just came across this on Neil Gaiman's blog -- I love his wish for the New Year:
I'm heading off for a three-day poetry retreat today. Poetry is mostly new to me, and I'm hoping this experience will tap another side of my writing brain, if that makes any sense. I'm bringing my own pillow and a print-out of my work-in-progress, which I've been reading aloud to myself (very quickly -- I can't seem to read aloud slowly when I'm the only person in the room. Maybe if I had Neil's accent . . .).
Also in the works is my FEBRUARY BOOK TOUR. During the first ten days of February, I'll be visiting schools and bookstores in five cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Boston. I have never even been to three of those cities, so I'm getting excited . . . details coming soon.
