Welcome, Winter Break!

Papers are graded, final grades are in.  I’m not officially on break, quite yet — tomorrow I will go in and clean my office, but then I am free for three weeks.  I do plan on making this winter break a working break — that is finish some poems, write some reviews, and get my manuscript ready so it can go out into the world in 2010.

In the meantime, I will also be catching up on all my reading, especially a few early Christmas presents (poetry books, of course) that came in the mail today.  I also have a small stack of books about writing pedagogy that I want to explore.  And speaking of pedagogy, I know that the Internet has been flooded with December sales, but I found one bargain that can’t be beat.  Check out Teachers & Writers Collaborative, which is having a sale — $8 per book — during the month of December.  I’ve already put my order in.
