So it has come to my attention that there is to be a sort of wootness that is a Holiday Party on Twitter. Seriously, we all need to party together and since there is no way I can afford to fly you all to Arizona or some other neutral location, we will do this the 21st century way: via Twitter!
Now, before you think, "Jamie! This is brilliant! How did you ever come up with such an idea?" Please let me assure you that I am but a messenger. A Christmas elf, if you will, to Julie Butcher's Santa. (@jimsissy on Twitter. She doth rock!)
I am doing my part to spread the word.
So here's what you do.
1. Join the party by tweeting to #holidaybash by Monday, December 7, 2009
2. Run around you house and find a white elephant gift that will fit into an envelope, put it in the envelope and get it ready to mail. You can't buy something new. Your gift can be humorous, thoughtful, strange or dramatic. The wilder, the better. (Risque is acceptable but not dirty. PG rated gifts.)
3. On Monday, we'll post who you mail your gift to. It will be your job to follow them on twitter,
get their mailing address, and send their gift.
4. Tuesday, December 8, 2009 we get our work done. Agents do agent stuff and clear your inboxes. Writers write and work on revisions. Editors, set a goal. We'll cheer you on! Authors, finish those projects.
Let's all work like crazy so we can enjoy the holidays with our families!
5. Don't open your present when it arrives! We'll open them together at the party.
6. Party time is Thursday, December 17th at 9:00 PM Eastern. We'll get a chat room, open the presents, sing songs and drink the beverage of our choice ;D
