Going dark

I'm going to take a couple days now for the holiday week.
No work, just the occasional tweet or blog post, no replying to queries or email. I'll be reading when I'm not going for a train ride.

Good Girl,

All work and no play makes Jill

very tired e-reader.

Enjoy the holidays.

Enjoy the break! Merry Christmas!

Man, that's a funny-looking shark. A great white polar shark, with the clawed fins option, the fur-ball upgrade, and the air-breathing accessory package?


Ali Trotta said...

Sounds like a great plan. I hope you have a wonderful holiday, Janet -- and that it's full of laughter, Scotch, and Jack Reacher (not Tom Cruise AS Jack Reacher).

Also, that photo? So cute. Merry Christmas!

Have a great Christmas break, Janet. I'll miss your posts for the next few days, but you deserve a rest. :)

You've given so much to the writers who follow this blog and Query Shark; you definitely deserve the time off. I was waiting for a Christmas Query Shark post for this, but I'll post it here. Sharkifying carols has become my own mini-tradition since I was blessed by the discovery of both your blogs, so in the spirit of "Oh, Christmas Shark" and "You're a Mean One, Mr. Fins", I give you:


Dashing through the reef
With a query for a book.
I Sent it to the Shark,
But it didn't have a hook.

The grammar was a mess;
The format needed work.
Forgot about the plot and voice,
And the character was a jerk.

Oh... Query Shark, Query Shark
Gave me a form reject
Shredded all my golden words
Snark I did not expect.

Query Shark, Query Shark
I thought I could write.
But now I know, I’ve far to go.
Next time I’ll get it right.

You've helped a lot of us "get it right", Janet, and for that, I say Thank You.

Merry Christmas!

Enjoy your break, Janet. You deserve as much 'eye-resting' as you can get!

Happy Holidays, Janet

Thanks for another year of 'The Great Blog'... and remember, if your desire is for a White Christmas... I'm your 'hook-up'! Here in Alaska we got tons of the white stuff sittin' around doin' nothin'... Hello FedEx!

Have a great break!

(If your eyes are well rested I'd love it if you'd drop by my blog Christmas party! We could really use some polar-shark-bear fun!)

Have a wonderful break, Janet. All the best for a happy and healthy 2012, and thank you for all your hard work!
