Dear Santa

Dear Santa,


All I want for Christmas is a totally awesome story idea. Ideally it would make for an immensily popular movie too. #writingiseasy #Illfinishinaday

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is my dream agent to offer to represent me. #hittingsendmakesmesonervous #Iwanttopuke

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is for my dream agent to sell my story at auction. #wouldsellmysoulifitwouldhelp

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is to earn out my advance. #needtohavereadersupport

Love, Writer who still feels Nervous and Anxious

Dear Santa,

Now that my awesome story has sold through three printings and is being turned into a major movie, all I want for Christmas is another totally awesome story idea. #writingisthebestpart Oh, and a new agent. My last one decided to become an author. #yeahneedtogobackonthequerygoround

Love, Writer who is Clearly Insane but more than Ready to Go Through the Vicious Cycle all over again.
