Single for the Holidays

Are you single for the holidays, cause Single Gal has put it perfectly for the time of year we are in!

Single Gal Starting Over

Ah, the holiday season is upon us once again. And I am single for another round of those heart-warming days and chilly nights. Sometimes it is hard to be alone when all you want to do is make two hot toddies, cuddle up with someone special under a big blanket and watch old Christmas movie classics.

Luckily those moments are few and far between for me. Most of the time I revel in my singleness.

Several Short Sentences About Writing by Verlyn Klinkenborg

The writing book for the writer who’s read all the writing books. Klinkenborg is all about sentences. Make every sentence justify its existence. Let the unspoken between sentences speak for itself. This book is written in what I can best describe as free verse. There are no solid paragraphs, instead sentences whose line breaks come at Klinkenborg’s discretion.

I now keep this book on my kitchen table with three different bookmarks stuck inside to reference various passages as I work. BONUS: Get the whole gift set, including this book & other goodies.
