by Ursula Renée

Harry Harrison’s “May You Always” has become a holiday tradition for me. In the spirit of one of my favorite recordings, I would like to present my wish list to you.

·         May you get that one hour each day you need to write your work-in-progress.

·         May you sit in front of the computer and your writer’s block disappear.

·         May that wonderful plot twist that came to you before you went to sleep at night be with you when you wake up in the morning.

·         May you find the inspiration to complete the work-in-progress you had been putting off for years.

·         May you find a critique partner who offers you constructive criticism that helps strengthen your work.

·         If you get a rejection, may you find someone who’ll offer you a shoulder to cry on as well as give you the push youneed to get back out there.

·         May your dream editor love your manuscript and offer you a contract.

·         May your edits go smoother than you expected.

·         On that stressful day, when nothing seemed to go your way, may you get a five-star review.

·         And, last but not least, may you experience good health and happiness during the holiday season and throughout the New Year.♥
