HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE!
If you're reading this, thank you,
and pat yourself on the back
for having the time to read a little right now.
Three things that have changed in my writing in 2014:
2.) Anti-Comfort Zone.
Suddenly, writing is exciting again. It has a luster. It has slipped its hand into mine and led me down a path I've never trod before, and like new love, there re stars in my eyes and I don't sleep for thinking of the new work, and I can't wait to get through these holidays to revisit it because damn...it's fun.
Short stories have always been difficult for me. When I sit down to write one, I always get a novel. I plot bigger and bigger and bigger. But this year I have written a handful some for seasonal blogs, some to submit to anthologies...some are on submission waiting to hear back but one, the one I wanted to be in sooo much...
I learned on Sunday that I was accepted! Best present I could've gotten right now. Just delighted, ecstatic, overjoyed, and elated to be a part of the project I muppet-flailed and happy-danced all over the house.
I hope that this holiday season brings you
some of what you long for, and all of what you need.
May you have your
loved ones in your arms,
may you laugh more than ever,
and may the happy sparkle
of the season glimmer in your eyes.
