Happy Winter Solstice!

Yay - the days start getting longer again!

I would like to take this opportunity to dispel a common belief: You don't get hangovers from sake. Well, okay, it's not exactly a hangover, but...putting away two-thirds a bottle of junmai ginjo last night (and way too much pizza) left me dehydrated and stuffy today. But y'know, it was well worth it - a great writer's holiday party. We read each other new horror stories, guffawed at some hilariously bad writing, and generally had the best kind of Christmas party. As one participant put it, "Just like family but without the bickering!"

Now if I can ever actually find time to write again...
