Twas the Week Before Christmas

Twas the week before Christmas and this writer was nestled snug in her bed, hoping for visions of her next story to dance in her head.

But her eyes popped open with a feeling of dread. There was no story to be found, but something else filled her thoughts instead.

So she rose from her bed with a clatter, as her cats watched her to see what was the matter.

It was as if her mind had been in a fog, until she relaxed and realized it was Monday night and she had forgotten her blog!

Dash it all!

So she grabbed her computer and started to write. But what could she possibly compose so late at night?

Why a poem of course…

…with a little help from the season. Any good writer will find a good reason to use a writer’s prompt that is tried and true, like reworking a favorite poem if she can’t think of anything else to do.

She hunkered over her computer as her fingers flew over the keys, and hoped her readers didn’t think she was too much of a tease.

And as she typed her last words and dashed of out sight, she wished everyone sweet dreams and to all a good night!

  1. Funny, AE. Perfect for the season. May your stockings be filled with story ideas, writing prompts, and blessings for the New Year. Merry Christmas. Thank you for the card. Love you, girl.

  2. AE I have so enjoyed every one of your books.
    Th shifter series made me feel like I knew everyone of the characters personally. I hope there is another book. I would love to know what if anything happens between Mischa and the new head of the realm patrol. I would also love to know if Griffin finds love and how Trina grows up and how her powers and shifter are best used. I think she will become a big part of the future shifter council. And lets not forget about our favorite character Marie. I think there is so much more story to be told. May you and your family have a Blessed Christmas. Look forward to a New Year filled with new stories from the shifters family. That is how I think of them. Merry Christmas to all,. 🎅🎅🎅

    1. Wow Barb, what wonderful words! It is a great gift to me in this holiday season to hear that you like my books! I’m glad that you feel like my characters are family. I feel that way too, but I hear their voices in my head so I kind of have to treat them like family 🙂

      Actually, I am working on Misha’s story right now and would also like to eventually write about the shifters in my Mind Sweeper world as well, so you are definitely reading my mind right now! Have a wonderful holiday and thanks for sharing your thoughts.
