The ONLY Time I Listen to Music While Working

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Fill the air with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and cough drops! Clutter the house with yule knick-knacks, holly, ribbons and red noses! Listen to the carols and choirs, and the neighbors complaining about the caroling choirs in the street!

Ah, December. Who can work in the midst of all that wonderfulness? But if you can, here’s a holiday writing opportunity for you:

The Spinetinglers Christmas Ghost Story Competition is accepting your creepy, spooky yule tales until midnight, December 18th. You can snag a bit of Fame and Fortune from the Brits, who for reasons only they can explain, love ghost stories at Christmas! Check out the details here for this no-entry fee contest!

And here’s a wonderful opportunity for you to start the season of giving with a gift that will help a fellow writer:

It’s the Season of Love and Hope Auction to benefit Bridget Zinn, who’s working hard to kick cancer. Tons of writers and friends have donated books, critiques, and other gifts to raise money for this young, YA author. Why not make a bid and make her day shine a little brighter? But hurry! The auction closes on December 4th!

I’m off to the auction myself, just as soon as I finish belting out “Love on Layaway.” I don’t want to brag, but it’s kinda hard to tell the difference. Is it me or Gloria Estefan singing?

  1. I know! I'm such a sucker for sappy Christmas music-and I'm not gonna lie. I've been known to tear up at "Blue Christmas." Or "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."Oh, snap. See? I'm getting a little teary thinking of "Meet Me in St. Louis."(Happy holidays, Kelly!)

  2. Wish you were in St. Louis. You are such a hoot. I cannot believe it, you inspired me to write a Christmas ghost story, and it is based on a true event. Never know what little nugget I'll find when I visit you! Thanks Cathy. Now I have to proof this scary tome and send it on its merry way.

  3. Linda, that's great! And I stopped by your blog and was inspired to write a limerick!And Deb, if you write a ghost story, I think you should put Daniel in it! ;-)Lisa, you probably have a few ghost stories hanging about. (P.S. You don't have to have Christmas stuff up to write about it- You know my pumpkin's still outside!)
