A Writer’s Christmas List

photo With Christmas fast approaching, I feel compelled to share my wish list of writerly joys—most of which I already have. Kinda cool, isn’t it?

  1. Words a-plenty with which to play.
  2. Stories large and small to weave.
  3. Beautiful pens, notebooks, notecards, and sticky notes for the physical, sensual side of writing.
  4. A quiet space in which to dream characters, settings, conversations, plot twists.
  5. Fellow writers to share our ups and downs—and, of course, our writing.
  6. Books of every type to instruct, delight, challenge, entertain, and inspire.
  7. A special coffee shop or two, with friendly baristas and exceptional espresso.
  8. Readers who love our writing and get what we’re trying to say.
  9. A furred friend or five to inspire, comfort, or exercise (as needed).
  10. Friends and family who love us despite our writerly quirks and foibles…and help us remember why it is we do what we do.

Merry Christmas, for those of you who celebrate this holiday with me! And for the rest of you, may you have a joyous holiday season and a blessed New Year!

:) Cheryl

PS: Lest you think I have *everything* I desire:

11. An all-expenses paid trip to the San Juan Islands to continue the research for my current book….
