WRITERS AND SANTA
Writing Practice and Finding your Muse
December 15, 2019
Here are parts of something I wrote a few years ago. I felt it strongly then. But now I feel it even more deeply than ever.
Don’t give up on Santa quite yet! He doesn’t just disappear on December 25th.
Santa can be anywhere. He is in a gift from someone who picked it out for you knowing exactly why you would love it. My sister gave me a book on the history of the ballet. I’m a dancer. That book will be on my night table where I will get lost in my magical world of dance for many months to come.
You may be awestruck by the bright twinkling milky way in a dark silky sky. Your eyes open wide. The person with you sees your starlit gaze and is taken by the infinite dots of light even more. He then passes on the moment to someone else. I think that’s how Santa works.
Hey Santa Claus, I’m so grateful you hang around all year. You are my muse. Let’s not ignore him writers. He’s there for us.
And now it’s Christmas time 2019 and I take such comfort from those long Santa hugs in the middle of chaos.
Happy 2019 and love to your writing from Maggie and me.
I’m so excited to announce that my children’s middle-grade book (ages 8 to 11) had its debut on November 1, 2019.
