STATUS: It’s TGIF for the next two weeks!

What’s playing on the iPod right now? CHRISTMAS (BABY PLEASE COME HOME) by U2

Nelson Literary Agency is officially closed until Jan. 2, 2007. But have no fear, there will be new blogs in the new year.

Until then, Happy Holidays! I’ll see you then.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year. Enjoy the time off. Our business is closed from Dec. 21 til Jan. 8, and I can’t wait for the break. It means I can spend a lot of time writing. Yayyyy!!

    I look forward to your return.

    Have happy holidays. I loved your year-in-review statistical recap. Wow! You’ve been busy, but you also have a lot to be feeling good about.

    Enjoy the break.

    And if you’re in the giving mood (you’ve given so much already, I’m not suggeting you NEED to give more, just saying), go help Miss Snark.

    I’m feeling terribly sorry for her as she’s spending her holiday commenting on all of our hooks sent in to her recent Crap-O-Meter (she got something like 687 slush-like hooks that she’s now ploughing through and commenting on. That’s like a blizzard, not a slushpile.)

    But if you need to regenerate with time away from the work , drink some more egg nog! And have a wonderful holiday.

    Ah, I see that you have given some help to Miss Snark–vacation photos. Miss Snark’s got a link to photos (posted on Bella Stander’s site) and there is lovely Kristen Nelson, with hubby and dog. Enjoying vacation in Telluride.

    Looks like fun!

    Merry Christmas Kristin, Last point, I was surfing about and came across this nugget of info on CNN. Might make a good topic for a 2007 blog.

    Who knows, it might make making sales for you a whole lot easier in the coming years as it might seriously cut production costs for the bigger publishing houses (if it doesn’t outright kill them). Personally, I have no idea which way it might go.

    Why is Miss Snark the only female agent/editor who can A) post at least once a week and B) not say, “See you in a month!”.

    Screw that boring noise. Fold it up, you haven’t the heart for it.

    I would guess it’s because Miss Snark is anonymous.

    I have read on other blogs that, when professionals post on their blogs during times of vacation, they get deluged with emails asking, “Why aren’t you doing X, Y, & Z?! It needs to be done blah blah blah…”
