I almost forgot to add the last surprise to the Hall of Fame Holiday Giveaway! But since today is the last day of December, not to mention the decade, I have just enough time to squeeze in one more gift.
I was going to throw in one of my wonderful writing books, because a. I have quite a few writing books and b. I never quite get around to reading my writing books. So, it seemed like a good idea to foist off one on you. Um, give to you. Whatever.
BUT, then I received an email saying that From the Asylum was shutting its doors, and that made me kinda sad. And not just because the story I’d had accepted for an upcoming anthology wouldn’t be published. I really liked the FTA webzine; the stories were speculative and often twisted. And the stories chosen for the anthologies were more of the same. That’s why I was so excited when my story “Language Barrier” was selected for one of the earlier anthologies, Loving the Undead, An Anthology of Romance, Sort Of…
And then whammo! It hit me that I should give away one of my copies of Loving the Undead! Send one of my very first published and favoritest stories out to you with love and sort of happy, sort of creepy, wishes!
Ah, I’m feeling much better. And you’re going to feel pretty good yourself if you win the Cathy C.’s Hall of Fame Holiday Giveaway package! I don’t even remember what all I’ve squeezed into that package. But I’m thinking it’s a lot of good writing stuff to start the New Year!
(Leave a comment here or on any December post if you want your name thrown into Santa’s hat for a chance to win the Giveaway. Then come back in a day or two…well, let’s be honest. I’ve got A LOT of football to watch. So, just keep checking back to see who wins. I promise I won’t forget that!)
I'm still on the fence about what my writing New Year's resolution should be. I don't know if I don't want to set myself up for failure or if I just need to focus on a particular area (longer fiction vs shorter freelance stuff). Perhaps I should throw a dart & see where it lands? I need to get back into reading writing books. It's been a while & I always got amped after I finished one.
C'mon, Krysten…Failure is not an option :-)Why not do both? I separate my writing goals into essays, children's fiction, adult fiction, and non-fiction. Um, I don't always get every goal done, but I don't get bored, either!
Ok, I'll aim high since I live on the ground floor & there will be no fears of my jumping off a ledge should I fail. I mean I still can jump, I just won't have that far to fall 😉
Hahaha! That's the spirit, Krysten! (Even so, I'm sending you some Little Engine That Could bandaids 🙂
I think you have your Facebook picture.
Hahaha, Bill! See? We're the only ones who think like that…
