What a week for writing! Somehow I’ve managed to get in early, two weeks in a row… it’s called insomnia! In the meantime, my piece on the holiday blues is on fire at Huffington Post and in one of the happiest blogging things (for me) in ages, the Gratitude Blog Party I started, is creating a wonderful swell of good vibes. I would love it if my FF blog buddies would join! It’s really easy. Check out this post; then write your own (10-15’ish minutes), and link up to this feel good thing. So far 41 other bloggers have joined; please check it out and consider adding your name! I love the way blogging brings so many people together; this is a bright reflection of that.
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction challenge that also brings lots of great people together. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields generously herds us cats and makes it look easy! It isn’t. Thanks Rochelle! To learn more, check out her blog, Addicted to Purple. This week’s photo was provided by Scott L. Vannatter. As always I welcome honest, constructive feedback.
*Wishing all of you a joyous Christmas filled with love and good things! *
“The Stockings Were Hung By The Chimney With Care”
“Shit! What the hell!”
Caught in the act, Santa took a nervous step back and dropped the cookie. The hairs on his neck stood up.
“That’s a good little guy… go back to sleep,” he cooed, in his most soothing baritone.
He eased backwards, carefully dragging his giant sack of gifts with him. He hated these situations; anything he did was likely to wake others.
“That’s a good boy…” He reached out gingerly.
Tigger snarled again.
The lights on the tree amplified the effects; he wished he’d brought the catnip.
