Junior's Reading And Viewing List:
Christmas Eve To New Year's Eve 2009

Included in this 'Junior's Reading And Viewing List' post, are links for some things offered up on the web from Christmas Eve to New Year's Eve. It's a very small sample of the kind of things I was checking out during that time.

I could have included a lot more, and if the computer and internet service I've been using had been funtioning properly, we'd be all caught up. Once that does happen, more can be posted, and straight away too.

NaNoWriMo 2009: Boilermaker
By Kameron at I May Have Been Born Yesterday
But I Stayed Up All Night

I was talking to novelist and screenwriter William Goldman about my National Novel Writing Month manuscript. He said it was rough and needed a lot of work, but had some potential.
