What's up the Street Next Week?

How is your decorating going? Chestnuts roasting by an open fire, yet?
Twinkling lights and fires all aglow?
Stockings hung and the promise of mistletoe? ;-)

Here at the Alley, we'd like to know what your favorite part of decorating is? Do you have a special ornament? Family heirloom?

Share it with us!

NOW FOR NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, one of the Alley Cats received an early Christmas present this year. The fabulous and fantastic Angie Dicken is now represented by the marvelous literary agent, Tamela Hancock Murray from The Steve Laube Agency.


Not only  did Angie get a fab agent, Tamela got a wonderful author! A good match? Oh yea!

So what's going on next week?

Monday - 'Tis the season for Hallmark movies, and Pepper is going to chat about Hallmark- a formula for emotions and plot-building for HEA

Tuesday - Sherrinda brings us her usual charming post today.

Wednesday - Learn about Writing Successful Down Home Humor with Mary Vee.

Thursday - Got any writing tucked away? Krista talks about the value of the Desk Drawer.

Friday - Can't wait for this one (since I'm such a movie buff). Casey is going to chat about how Movies Influence and Inspire in our writing :-)
