SHORT STORIES ARE LIKE JESUS
I meant to say Happy Christmas to you all yesterday but...the freezing weather and no heat/no water situation here at home had me stressed out to my ears, so I didn't get around to it. We still have no heat or water but at least Christmas Day is upon us, Santa arrived safely and we have a fire on, so all is well. And we lasted until 5.30am before getting up, which is not bad.
Anyhoo, dear blog readers, thank you for reading in 2010 - a quieter year for blogging all round - and for your cheerful support of me and my writing. I love that you all tune in.
I woke the other night thinking about short story analogies - Ailsa Cox has been collecting these on her blog here. I came up with a seasonal one. Ahem:
Short stories are like Jesus: they enter the world with a bang; do something extraordinary early on; then move convincingly, and with purpose, to their inevitable ending. Ta dah!
Nollaig shona, all!
