Want to keep the holidays going even after the New Year begins? Want to start your writing year from a place of inspiration, illumination, and optimism?

Sign up for my 12 Days of Christmas email series and you’ll receive a gift from me each day. Short, sweet, inspirational, and no strings attached. Traditionally, the twelve days of Christmas begins on Christmas day, but we’ll start on December 26th and conclude on January 6th.

You’ll receive daily, bite-size surprises such as:

  • Exercises to evaluate and integrate your 2016 writing year so you are ready for 2017
  • Tools to illuminate successes in order to go even further in your writing
  • “Never-before-seen” content from me about the writing life
  • FUN ways to handle rejection
  • How to keep the fun and whimsy in your life and your writing
  • Resources, Inspiration, Tips, and More!

What you will not find in this email series:

  • Browbeating
  • Lectures
  • Prescriptive programs
  • Sales pitches

So come join the fun! The series is open to everyone, everywhere. I hope it is obvious, but you do not have to celebrate Christmas to participate — I’m simply using the tradition of “12 days” to give you some writing gifts that will be more useful than seven swans-a-swimming. πŸ™‚

  38. My first day of Xmas is a story of a dog named Professor (Β© Nathan Eakins) when out playing is bitten on the nose by a fox the dog returns and infects all the residences of the house except the mother (I’m a traditionalist writer who believes in the bible) and the project ends when she is on the verge of being attacked. Although reminiscent of Cujo Professor is more a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation crossed with Rats by James Herbert.

  39. My next story is called Jing And Jan two turtles who in a water filled cave connected with their nest are attacked by a rabid badger that also carries TB the two turtles with rabis are afraid to go back home and die of pneumonia but their carcasses are eaten clean by bats.

    Reply

  40. My next story is about three foxes all infected with rabis and how they are eventually killed by a concerned farmer who gets his comeuppance.

    Reply

  41. My next story is about four brothers of the farmer who died at the hands of a vet (perhaps played by Jenny Agutar) who resort to chemical warfare to destroy the infected flying animals which have caused soo much harm to date, after a new outbreak all are killed.

    Five gold rings, well, tracking devices and the rabis is linked to the professor of tropical disease who had been working in Japan’s nuclear exclusion zones examining cross species infections and mutations.

    Six geese a-laying, fuel bombs are employed as part of the outbreak response while congress approves a compensation package for home owners.

    Seven swans a-swimming yes they are swans and yes they go a swimming, the 75% ownership by a reputable institution has this nest egg covered.

    Maids a-milking, well lies, emotional blackmail, even murder it’s the American dream at its worse but as they start to succumb to radiation sickness will they turns states evidence on their nearest and dearest?

    Nine ladies dancing, ring a ring a roses perhaps.

    Ten Lords a-leaping, with direct links to the British royal family and an ex U.S. President which way they leap is crucial.

    Eleven pipers piping, the reconstruction efforts are going well and the danger is passed.

    Twelve drummers drumming, with the ex President under house arrest freedom may not be assured for her.
