Thanksgiving was spent with Amanda's friends, family and Cloud-club-mates at our place in Cambridge MA.
You can read about it, and watch Benedict and Gillian in letter-reading action at http://readingagency.org.uk/adults/news/cumberbatch-cave-anderson-and-gaiman-join-together-in-praise-of-letters.html
The holidays were spent in the sun, with the family, and were made extra-wonderful when I learned that Ocean At The End of the Lane had been voted the UK's Book of the Year.
And now I'm thinking about the year to come. I'm planning a social media sabbatical for the first 6 months (I talked about it here: http://www.theguardian.com/books/2013/jun/14/neil-gaiman-social-media-sabbatical). It's about writing more and talking to the world less. It's time.
I plan to blog here MUCH more, as a way of warming up my fingers and my mind, and as a way of getting important information out into the world. I'm planning to be on Tumblr and Twitter and Facebook MUCH less, although I'll make sure that posts letting people know about new blogs here keep going up, and I may nip out into the world from time to time to plug good causes.
Keep an eye on http://www.neilgaiman.com/where/ which will tell you where I'm likely to show up in person, and how to get tickets:
|New York, NY|
If you are used to hanging out with me on Tumblr or Twitter or Facebook, you are very welcome here. Same me, only with more than 140 characters. It'll be fun. Or it'll be like watching someone giving up smoking.
