Thirteen Things about Writing Gifts I’d Like Santa to Bring Me for Christmas




It’s fun to see all the presents piled up under the Christmas tree and in the stockings on Christmas Day. This is a great season for giving, but it’s also fun to receive, especially when someone gives you cool writing stuff. Here are some things I would love to see Santa leave in my stocking this year.

1. An Alphasmart Keyboard – I don’t know for sure if it would help me write more when I travel, but I’d like to give it a go.

2. Some 0.7 Lead Refills – not terribly exciting, but practical.

3. A Composer – to coauthor a musical for stage and screen.

4. Dinner with Shirley Maclaine – I KNOW that would inspire my writing.

5. A New Agent sans a contract with an Interminable Agency Clause – for my novel projects.

6. Some Black Montblanc Pen Refills – again, not exciting, but practical.

7. Some of Santa’s Elves – to clean up my office.

8. A New Agent – for my screenplay and television projects.

9. A Few More Freelance Assignments – Mama needs new shoes.

10. More Time – to complete my projects.

11. Some Extra Cash – to take my critique partner to the restaurant of her choice.

12. Some Personalized Art Deco Style Post It Notes - because I’m almost out of them.

13. A Seven-digit Contract for One of My Projects - ‘nuff said.

What writing-related gifts would you like to find in your Christmas stocking this year?

I want TIME. And lots of it, just to sit and write.
