Happy New Year!
Already it is a busy one for me. I'm in the last strokes of writing my thesis and have several job interviews lined up every week. My personal for-pleasure-novel writing has been shelved until February. I miss it but the days just don't have enough hours these days.
Just after New Year, Agent #2 of the first three chapters wrote a rejection. I guess it's a good thing I don't have the time to dwell on that right now.
