Fa-la-la-la Christmas Stories

I love watching Christmas movies. I’m sure in a few weeks, I will blog about The Christmas Story. I love Christmas music and looking at the decorations as I drive along.

Today’s post is about Christmas stories. Today I began reading All I Have to Give: A Christmas Story by Melody Carlson.

melodyI’m enjoying it so far, even if there is a hint of sadness. This kind of speaks to my life right now. There is a hint of sadness. It will be the first holiday season without my husband’s sister. We will miss her a lot.

This post is not about that. Trying to find the happiness and stay there. Anyway, I keep saying I want to write a Christmas story, but the only one. That was last year and I’m not sure where I posted it. The place I thought I posted it it’s not there. As soon as I remember the title, I will post it here. Until then I will try to write two more; one for this blog and one for the website (check it out. My writer, sister, friends, and I are creative with a limited amount of words.)

What is your favorite Christmas story? I can’t ever have enough to read.


Where Do I Go From Here?

Early this month, I graduated from college with my bachelors degree. I worked hard enough to graduate with honors. A few months before I ended that journey a friend convinced me to go a little further in my educational journey. So, now I am working on my masters. I believe I am crazy. Ask me in a year.

I’ve been writing my snaps 1000 words. I am slowly finding the writer that my muse wants me to be. She rocks ghetto socks for really. The lat story I wrote today was so out of the box for me and heck damn good. I wonder will I be able to top myself. I’m going to try like nobody’s business.

Now that I have a degree, the search has begun to find me a door that leads to the begin of my career. I’ve never been known as a person who will settle. So, I am praying for the right place where I can use my talents and all the things that I learned over the course of the past four and a half years.

Aside from that, I need to add some finishing touches to stories I have written. My husband has created three awesome covers for books I have in the works. It would be a shame to let them go to waste. Stay tune for the reveal of those covers.

While you’re waiting on my full-length stuff check out my Snaps 1000 stories.

Snaps 1000

I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying a picture is worth a 1000 words. Well, a couple of friends and I have taken this literally. Yes, we are taking pictures and writing stories that revolve around the pictures…inspired by them.

My story “Species in a Jar” is the debut to the website and the idea. Please head on over to Snaps 1000 and find out about the Snappers and read the stories. A new story will be available every Monday. You don’t want to miss out. Subscribe so you won’t ever miss a new post. Leave comments. We love those.
