The Strictly Writing crew are herewith signing off for a couple of weeks. We'll be back posting on Monday 4th January - 2010!
We hope you all enjoy the festive season and wish you the very best for the New Year.
I shall be attending a Bollywood themed party on New Year's Eve. Last year's theme was unspecified - I wore a Twenties style costume and my husband went as a giant whoopee cushion (it's amazing, the variety of fancy dress outfits you can buy nowadays). We and the group of friends there really only chat, in depth, at this party, once a year. So I am bracing myself for questions about how my writing went in 2009 and whether I am published 'yet'. Erm... Nope. But I'm one book closer. Hopefully. Well, it's easy to be 'half-glass full' when it's champagne!
Before we sign off, just to announce the winner of the Emily Gale giveaway competition: Well done Sky Blue! Please email me (Samantha) through my profile and I'll get back to you within the next couple of weeks.
See you all in January. It's been great reading all your comments and we look forward to another interesting year of fun and discussion in 2010.
