If you are anything like me you may not always have the money to buy Christmas presents. I believe the best gifts are a reflection of the one who gives it. I'm not a toy maker like Santa Claus - although I wouldn't mind having his job, and I do get to play the role at the family Christmas party. I'm a writer. My creativity is in weaving words, so for the past couple of years I have given stories as gifts. I write a new one for my niece every year. This year I have written two mysteries for a young reader and may have inadvertently created a series character in the person of a fifth grade detective.
Writing is what we do, so isn't it logical to give stories as Christmas presents?
Merry Christmas to all!
