I hosted the Maine RWA holiday party on Saturday. Dang, we are a bunch of good cooks. Casseroles, salads, nibbly bits, desserts, and chocolates.
I ate far too much but I had to try a bit of everything. It was my duty as the hostess. Much like I need to taste-test the dough when I'm baking cookies.
We did a Yankee gift exchange, and even though my first gift was ripped from my hands *giggle*, I came away with a lovely collection of writerly bits and bobs.
The highlight of the afternoon, in my opinion, was the company. We chatted and laughed, and shared the joys and tribulations of being writers.
