Some of us at the Cybils scifi and fantasy committee are already getting down because we're no longer receiving multiple packages of books from publishers. I know it's going to be really rough for me to no longer have an excuse to read all day. In fact, today I had to break down and do some pre-holiday work. For several hours.
I don't know if I can go back to that kind of life.
However, I'm not going to have time to tank too badly over this. I received the manuscript for the next A Girl, a Boy, and a... book back from my editor today, so it will be time to go back to work on that as soon as we're done with Cybils. )I predict that will be somewhere around 11:45 p.m. on New Year's Eve, by the way.)
And, what's more, an on-line literary journal (which will remain nameless for the time being) has shown an interest in one of my essays, so I'm going to be doing some editing work on that first thing in the new year.
Then there is the issue of what reading all day since the first of December has done to my house. There are two rooms that won't be back to normal before February. If I'm lucky.
