And as always...thank you John!

With the holiday season upon us, it is our time to reflect on the year gone by and start getting together a list of resolutions for the New Year.   This is one of my comic relief poems...what I call the quick pick me upper when the muse comes to a halt.


Iíd like to wish all my fellow writers at RWA/NYC and Authors Den a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season.  I hope the New Year brings forth publishing contracts for First Time Authors and Lifetime TV contracts for our Published Members.



The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas, 
my critique group sent to me 
Twelve hours of nonstop writing, 
Eleven great plots with a twist, 
Ten true to life characters, 
Nine boxes of tissues, 
Eight books on writing, 
Seven books of stamps, 
Six boxes of assorted envelopes, 
Five colored pencils, 
Four reams of paper, 
Three black ink cartridges, 
Two laser printers, 
And a brand new apple computer.

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

Great writing, saying how to celebrate the christmas. Last year did not feel like celebrating after Tom's death. This year the cat and I are having a tree, cookies, decors and all the memories of the past will be with us and we will make new ones of our own without Tom. Holidays are to be enjoyed as much as you can and we are able to do better this year. Thanks for reminding us of how great to celebrate the good holidays and New Year. Terrific write here.
