It’s less than a week away! My 12 Days of Christmas Writer Style celebration will be starting soon! Since we won’t be able to meet in person, I would like to celebrate virtually by raising a glass to the accomplishments of some the writers whom I have been blessed to meet and interact with. If you want to get a beverage to toast with me, go for it!
I can entertain myself while I wait…
Got it? Awesome! Okay, Cheers!
So for this event, I will be sending out a post, or gift if you will, each day from December 25, 2020, to January 5, 2021 spotlighting an author that I admire, and providing links to their works. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it, I know some pretty awesome writers and they create some fantastic stuff!
In one way or another, each of these talented women are a fundamental part of my growth as a writer, and in no way is this list all-inclusive. I have met an incredible number of creatives who have each inspired me in different ways, and narrowing my posts down to 12 was extremely hard. I want to take this time to thank everyone in the @GDRWA, #RWA and the Twitter #WritingCommunity for their willingness to answer questions and lend a guiding hand.
I am so proud to be part of the writer community and I look forward to the day I can help a new writer trying to find their way. I have started a Writer Resource tab on my site for anyone who needs some direction. I plan on filling it in as I go, so be sure to check back from time to time. For any writers looking for their squad, I have met some fantastic folks under the hashtags #turtlewriters and #dolphinwriters, a few of whom you will meet through my posts. If you write Romance, I highly recommend finding your closest RWA Chapter, and attend their meetings either in person or on line. You can head over to RWA and start there at: https://www.rwa.org/.
There are links below that will take you to some interesting tidbits I found out about the Twelve Days of Christmas and will be leaving you with a beloved Christmas Carol. I have to warn you that it might not be the exact version you remember, but it was the only one I knew of until 3rd Grade when we moved here from Hawaii. I had a rude awakening when I realized I didn’t know the “right words” to this song. It was also surprising when the first snowfall hit here in Michigan, and I wasn’t used to wearing shoes!
Happy Holidays everyone, and be sure to check out my posts starting December 25th!
