I've already figured out what I want for Christmas next year. I want to go to the Writer's Police Academy put on by Lee Lofland (founder of The Graveyard Shift blog about police procedure and crime scene investigation).
Unfortunately, I didn't know about the WPA until my writing funds for the year were already allocated, but I'm hoping Mr. Lofland will host another event in 2011. Until then, I'm going to put in an application for my local citizens' police academy and see what happens.
On another note, I received a rejection with feedback and a request for a partial of my next project. Wow! Who knew rejection could feel so good? After a discussion with my CP, I have a game plan, and I'm feeling pretty good about it. Now I just need to knock out the synopsis, polish up my MS, and get that puppy off for her to rip to shreds. 😉
So, what's on your Christmas list?
