T'is The Season...
...And a day when we can reflect on all our writing accomplishments for 2005 -- no matter how large or how small. The things we've tried and were able to place for publication, as well as the things that didn't quite make it, but by taking it *back* to the drawing board for a bit of spit and polish, they're sure to find acceptance and placement in 2006.
Clearly, it all falls under the category of the "gift of learning" our craft. A very vital -- and precious gift.
Have the very merriest of holidays today.
