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 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 you need 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.
