Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

I hopeĀ  you’re finding time in this bustling season to pause, look around at your life, count your blessings, and express gratitude for them.

For me, Christmas has always been even more about thanksgivings than Thanksgiving. This year, I find myself increasingly thankful to get to take part in a creative lifestyle. Thank you for walking that road with me every day, even when we don’t see each other or make contact. I truly believe the work we are doing is one of the highest callings in life.

I’ll be taking a break from the writing to spend time with family and enjoy Christmas week. I hope you’re able to do the same, and I hope to see you in the New Year with pens sharpened, vigor renewed, and a thousand new stories waiting for us.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year, Wordplayers!

    And to everyone here, too … With the New Year comes renewed vigor – BUT! – even though I’m knee deep into my second novel, I’m going to take a break and watch all your youtube videos. I’m done eating chocolate and cookies (well, not so much the chocolate). I had no idea you’ve got more great ideas for us on youtube. I got hit with a cold, so the the pajamas will stay on and the wood stove cranked.
    Thank You yet again for your relentless and unapologetic nudges to get us thinking straight(er) about our characters and stories.

  14. Happy Christmas and Merry New Years to you, Katie!
    Thanks for giving us another year of insight, encouragement, and solid writing advice. I wish you all the best in your writing and creative efforts in 2019.
