Well, it’s Saturday morning, my Christmas shopping isn’t done, and we’re behind schedule.
There’s an up side and a down side to this. The down side? Kevin got called out last night. And when he did get home there was another call, for a different department. Needless to say it took a while to get back to sleep.
But here’s the up side. Know how I know the new wip is starting to take off? When I woke up I had something to write for it. That’s when I know the characters are really getting into my head and that it’s becoming clear where I want things to go. I didn’t write much, but it felt good to get up at 1:30 in the morning and type out some paragraphs.
In the midst of all the festive chatter I never stopped to think about taking security precautions with Santa. It would seem he’s packing more than toys these days.
Now, we must get ready to go do our shopping, so I’ll leave you with these. I have no idea if it’s any good or not, but here’s one of the Christmas stories I did last year. I think it made sense to me then, as I posted it, but I don’t remember what it’s about now.
And I’m not going to read it.
If you need some real holiday festive gems, try the 12 Days of Christmas collection over at Stuart’s. I really want to re-read them over the holidays, while people aren’t blogging.
Okay, shopping. I hate shopping.
