how I spent my winter vacation

Just like last year, I felt like I had to finally answer all my reader mail* before the new year. I'm getting better--my return rate is about 4 months versus the 6 months(!), now!

But that makes it sound like responding to reader mail is a chore. It isn't, really. It's actually quite a joy. I love hearing from readers--what they like about my books, who they are...and their ambitious cats:

though, to be fair, this writer didn't tell me why her cats were so ambitious! I am very curious. Doesn't it sound like a book that needs to be written-- "All the Ambitious Cats?" Maybe she'll tell me in her next letter.

*helpful hint if you want a response: Please make sure you write your return mailing address on your letter--sometimes I lose/mix up envelopes and can't figure out where to send! Apologies to anyone who does not get a response at all, it means I misplaced your return address.

WOW. You are amazing. Looking at that pile of letters that you are replying to, now I feel REALLY guilty about accidentally deleting the email I received from a girl in CT in Oct or in Nov. (I think our power was out from Hurricane Sandy when I got the email.) If I'm lucky, she is one of your fans, Grace, and is reading this comment right now. I'm sorry, Idea Girl: I only remember that you had an idea for a book that had something to do with China. (I vaguely remember thinking: this would be a great book for GRACE to write!!)

Well, it's a labor of love! Though, I always worry that since it takes me so long to get back people that they forget they wrote me and wonder who this strange person is writing them a letter.

Writing a term paper will no longer be a difficult undertaking if you prepare, formulate ideas and make your topic outline beforehand. It makes the actual writing part more convenient and efficient.
