The Twelve Days of Writing

Wednesday, December 24, 2014
In keeping with the holiday spirit, I've taken a few liberties with that old favorite "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Is everyone ready?  Here's hoping we're all singing this song in 20015. One, two, three...sing!

On the twelfth day (week, month, year...) of writing, my WIP gave to me:

  • Twelve plot ideas percolating
  • Eleven character biographies
  • Ten months of researching
  • Nine eons of writing
  • Eight fights with writer's block
  • Seven beta readers reading
  • Six plot holes needing filling
  • Five l - o - n - g drafts
  • Four proposal letters getting rejected
  • Three full manuscripts requesting
  • Two publishing houses bidding
  • One freshly printed book with your name on the cover
One day off for merrymaking and then back to writing!

Merry Christmas!

This is so cute! I love it and am planning to share all over social media. I have to post tomorrow. I can not compete. All I've come up with is my favorite Christmas story. Share yours. :) LOL Happy holidays to a great creative team!

Very clever! My hope for 2015 is two, three and four on this list. Thanks, Jodi!
