Back in Gear

The holidays are over! Yea! Now the world can get back to business.

I did join most Americans in enjoying downtime:

1) watched some of Battlestar Galactica, Season 3. What a great show...interesting and diverse characters, creative plot twists and convincing escapes from numerous cliffhangers.
2) reading one of the best books I've come across in awhile: The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly, set in 1900s London. I got an advance reading copy for free at the national Romance Writers of America conference...I picked it up because it's so thick (707 trade paperback pages). I love long books (possibly my all time favorite, The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George is 932 pages!), but today (except for Harry Potter) they are hard to find. High paper paper, to fit more books on a shelf and all that.

I shall confess that TWR made me cry at one point. Not only because the scene is moving, but because I fear I will never write anything that good.

But I digress. This is about working, not playing. Today so far I've submitted 2 voiceover auditions and sent out a bunch of e-mails asking for input on a magazine article I'm writing. And, to start on my main resolution: made an appointment for an individual yoga/meditation class.

In other news, my revised Web site went live today...I wanted it to be a little less girly and pink.

BSG is one of my favorite shows. The writers strike is breaking my heart. (although I am in full support)

I'll have to check out this book- as Margaret George's book was a favorite too.
