The Twelve Days of Writing

giphy

On the first day of writing my muse did give to me

A laptop to set on my knee.

On the second day of writing my muse did give to me

Two typing hands, and a laptop to set on my knee.

On the third day of writing my muse did give to me

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands, 

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the fourth day of writing my muse did give to me

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the fifth day of writing my muse did give to me

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the sixth day of writing my muse did give to me

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the seventh day of writing my muse did give to me

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the eighth day of writing my muse did give to me

Eight possible titles,

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the ninth day of writing my muse did give to me,

Nine POV switches,

Eight possible titles,

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the tenth day of writing my muse did give to me

Ten sticky plot points,

Nine POV switches,

Eight possible titles,

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the eleventh day of writing my muse did give to me

Eleven sips of Scotch,

Ten sticky plot points,

Nine POV switches,

Eight possible titles,

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee.

On the twelfth day of writing my muse abandoned me,

Who knows where she can be?

Oh, well, I’m a writer.  I still have—

Eleven sips of Scotch,

Ten sticky plot points,

Nine POV switches,

Eight possible titles,

Seven engaging characters,

Six grammar errors…

FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE!

Four hours alone,

A lovely Scrivener app, 

Two typing hands,

And a laptop to set on my knee!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Writers Everywhere!

    This is delightful! And the typing kitten just cracks me up! Thanks for the laugh. I’ve shared the link on my Blog… although I still haven’t had time to update and add a holiday post of my own.
