I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season and that there is a wonderful new year awaiting you!

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal, [livejournal.com profile] felisblanco, [livejournal.com profile] sillie82, [livejournal.com profile] dizzojay, [livejournal.com profile] cherry619, and [livejournal.com profile] digitalwave for the cards and to [livejournal.com profile] fireheart13 for my virtual gift.

I have two New Year's resolutions. One is to do at least one social thing a week because I am spending too much time at home on my computer. I have a head start this week because I have two friends in town that I am seeing today and tomorrow and this Friday I'll be going with a friend to see Timothy Odmundson at SF Sketchfest. Woot!

My other resolution is to read more published fiction. This didn't start well because just three days into the new year I started and then gave up on two books.The Director by David Ignatius started out interesting, but I gave up halfway through when it became a lot more pedestrian and I didn't believe in the characters. Louisa Meets Bear is a book of interconnected short stories, but I didn't like the first one that much and was put off by the second one being written in second person. However, today I started Whiskey Tango Foxtrot by David Shafer and laughed out loud three times in the first two pages. A good sign!

I am still reading fan fiction, though, and here are two recs of stories I read during my vacation, plus more news ... under the cut
