Christmas story is finished!

Yes, that's right. I finished writing my Christmas story on the last day of September instead of the third week in December. Amazing! I am going to have the most relaxing Christmas season ever. Of course, it's not totally finished. I write everything out by hand in a notebook, so I still have to type it all up on the computer. (For me, that's the worst part of writing.) I hope to have that done by the end of the week. Then, I'll let it sit until November, pull it out again, and see if there is anything I want to change. It's called "Star Blessed," and those of you lucky enough to be on my Christmas list will still have to wait until Christmas to read it. :) It's a straight fantasy, which is a little different for me. It doesn't have a medieval setting, but it does feature an evil sorcerer king.

A little background: I have been writing a Christmas story as my gift to family, friends, and neighbors since 1995. We were pretty much broke that year. I thought it might be nice to write a story to give to everyone. That wouldn't cost me much except for time. Now, the tradition is in its fourteenth year. Most Christmases, I regret ever starting this tradition. At least until the story is finished. I plan to try and sell them all as a collection.
