Dream Debutante Dress -
I'm so excited to be a part of this Christmas Debutante Event (thank you for including me, Lisa)! Christmas happens to be my favorite holiday...and if I weren't a writer, I might apply to be a holiday elf. Not only do I get overly excited about the magic and good will of the holiday season, I'm pretty sure that I could pull off sporting an authentic elf outfit because I'm only 5'2". But enough about my elfing ambitions, because I'm a writer....and I love it. Why do I love it? No, it's not the pull-your-hair-out tedious revision process, or the frustrating uncertainty of the book world, or the bite-your-fingernails-to-nubs nerves that reviews bring on. In fact, all of those aspects could make a half-hearted writer look for the nearest writerly exit and never come back. What I love about being a writer is the fun of taking an idea spark and creating a whole fictional world with it through the eyes of the characters that I bring to life. It's this magical creative journey that makes all the uncertainty and nerves of the publication process totally worth it. Oh, yeah...and getting to work in pajamas isn't a bad part of the gig either. All in all, I guess in some ways a writing profession parallels an elfing profession....but instead of creating toys and bringing holiday cheer to life, writers create stories and bring characters to life... and there's a lot of fun and magic that go into both. The big difference is that pajamas are probably more comfy than an elf suit (this is pure assumption, not based on experience).
Well Ladies and Gents, you have just officially met our second Debutante, Amy Holder! I can't tell you guys how excited I am about Lipstick Laws, the cover is just gorgeous!!! Oh! and Amy, you really should dress up as a elf and send us a photo! ( my imagination is preety good but still...) Anyway, thanks Amy for stopping by!
