Merry Xmas Everyone!

Just wanted to take time to say Merry Xmas to everyone. For 2009, I have a few specific things I need to get accomplished:

1. My agent is now shopping my next non fiction book. We'll know if it sells after New Years. If it does, I'll be spending the next nine months or so researching and writing it.

2. I'm in the middle of my latest rewrite of THE BESTSELLERS. Hopefully, it will be done before the end of January.

3. I'm also in the middle of writing my next novel. I've put SLAVERYLAND on the backburner, even though it's more than half done. Instead, I started writing my former script, DAISY SUNSHINE, as a novel. It works wonderfully. That's something I hope will be done by mid February.

4. And I don't know if I've mentioned this in the past, but I'd been searching for an artist to collaborate with on a comic strip I'd worked on during film school. I finally found a great one and my strip should debut in January.

5. Lastly, I'm going to pitch a couple of shows to TV One and the Food Network.

That's it. My mission for 2009 is to not get distracted and concentrate on my writing goals. They're pretty easy to accomplish, if I keep my mind organized and focused.

Again, Merry Christmas everyone!
