on Anne R. Allen site:
This year I have been a very good writer.
- I did all my homework, cheered on my fellow authors, and accepted rejections with grace and good humour.
- Smashed through writer’s block and only lost faith in myself every other Tuesday.
- Rewrote Chapter One 47 times and never complained (except for that one time I screamed for 6 minutes).
- But most of all, Santa, I never stopped writing.
This required courage, stamina, energy, faith, and on occasion, the ability to completely ignore logic, reason, and everybody who loves me.
So look – you’re a magical being, right? For whom anything is possible?
