Tarnished Tinsel

Well. . .I've been struggling with a proposal for Cobblestone's tarot card call for submissions.

So, on my weekly foray to the library, I thought I would go ahead and outline the Christmas story I was planning on writing for the BIAW challenge starting July 9th. Well, I started outlining. . . then started writing. I managed to put 2500 words on paper (well, pixels on screen) and think I could probably almost finish the first draft by the end of the weekend!

But, then, darn it all. I'll have to come up with something else to write for the BIAW challenge. Sigh.

I'll sneak in the tag line for Tarnished Tinsel:

When Santa receives death threats, the elves hire a body guard. Too bad Noel Holiday doesn't believe in Santa, elves, or love.

Cute! You're way ahead of the game.

Well I finally got off my butt and went to Cobblestone to buy Crystal Clear. Sorry it took me so long! Can I be excused because I was moving from China to America? Anyway, I can't wait to read it!!

Hey Ericka, that's so cool about your Christmas story. Good luck with it. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Y'know, the name of the hero in my Christmas novella is Noel too. :)

Hey Erika,

Trouble with your tarot story? Maybe you need a reading. Do you do tarot? If so, maybe a new deck will invigorate your senses. :)

Stop by the Midnight Moon Café next month and you might just get lucky. :wink:
