It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Fill the air with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and cough drops! Clutter the house with yule knick-knacks, holly, ribbons and red noses! Listen to the carols and choirs, and the neighbors complaining about the caroling choirs in the street!
Ah, December. Who can work in the midst of all that wonderfulness? But if you can, here's a holiday writing opportunity for you:
The Spinetinglers Christmas Ghost Story Competition is accepting your creepy, spooky yule tales until midnight, December 18th. You can snag a bit of Fame and Fortune from the Brits, who for reasons only they can explain, love ghost stories at Christmas! Check out the details here for this no-entry fee contest!
And here's a wonderful opportunity for you to start the season of giving with a gift that will help a fellow writer:
It's the Season of Love and Hope Auction to benefit Bridget Zinn, who's working hard to kick cancer. Tons of writers and friends have donated books, critiques, and other gifts to raise money for this young, YA author. Why not make a bid and make her day shine a little brighter? But hurry! The auction closes on December 4th!
I'm off to the auction myself, just as soon as I finish belting out "Love on Layaway." I don't want to brag, but it's kinda hard to tell the difference. Is it me or Gloria Estefan singing?
