A Writer’s Christmas List

All I want for Christmas is:

  • An unfettered flow of great ideas.
  • Characters that turn out as real on the page as they are in my head.
  • No awkward scene transitions.
  • Engaging, witty dialog.
  • A spellchecker that knows when I’m screwing up my homophones.
  • Brilliant, catchy names for characters that will never be forgotten by my readers.
  • A movie deal.
  • Okay, a book club deal is good too.
  • Just like, me saying “buy this book” and the person says “okay, deal.”
  • A breathtaking romance captured perfectly.
  • Barring that, an interesting cat lady.
  • No filler.
  • No tangents.
  • Not forgetting that detail I put in chapter two that was supposed to be important later on.
  • Looming foreshadowing.
  • Heart-pounding suspense.
  • To have characters that just for once don’t visit a restaurant/diner in one of my stories.
  • To have enough readers to laugh at my inside jokes about my writing.
  • Minimal edits.
  • Okay, at least less edits?
  • A quelling of my desire to put an exclamation point at the end of every sentence of dialog!
  • No characters having jobs/hobbies I have to research for a solid three months before I can begin writing.
