The Twelve Days of Writing for 2013

We posted this last year, but history repeats.

by Lupe Fernandez

On the Twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me:

Twelve Movie Options

Eleven Newbery Awards

Ten White House Invitations

Nine Weeks as Best Seller

Eight City Tours

Seven Keynote Speeches

Six Figure Advances

Five Book Contracts

Four Publishers Bidding

Three Books Covers

Two Editors Editing

and an Agent in a pear tree.

Have a cookie. You'll feel better.
If you're feeling a bit down this season, check out this 2.0 version of the The Twelve Days of Writing.

Until next year devoted readers, hasta la luego.

  1. I'm reading. Thanks for the Christmas Eve post. But I'm not writing. Maybe next week! It's a tough week for me. I'm going in search of cookies.
