May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through! -Anonymous (or... is it?)- On Wednesday I recommended you buy the fabulous Christmas Stories from the Everyman Library. It's one of my favourite volumes of short stories, the other one being Love Stories, also by Everyman. It all comes together nicely with an email I received recently. It was sent by one of the entrants of the short story compo. She linked me to her first Christmas story, right here. Thank you Kate! As my wish is to write something like The Polar Express, maybe I should start today. Write a Christmas story. Dear reader, I am off for the holidays. Have a peaceful Crimbo and I shall see you on 10 January, when I shall return online with the new issue of The Creative Times, some writing on here and, no doubt, plentiful tweeting. Until then, big kiss and much love!
