It's that time again-IWSG Christmas Style
The first Wednesday of every month is IWSG, a bloghop hosted by the amazing Alex J. Cavenaugh to encourage and inspire each other and a safe place to admit our writing doubts.
The elves decorated my house and the tree (a 30 dollar Wal-mart special) is standing and some of the (cheap plastic) ornaments have yet to be used as baseballs.
With the white lights of the bottom half of the pre-lit tree glowing, I feel like our tree is a reflection of me, not dense, or thick, or bushy (although I do need to attack my eyebrows again), but sparse, breaking, and with no lights on top. Since NaNo I've had so many responsibilities and Christmas packages and recitals, and ...and... that the time I'm able to devote to writing is few and far between. And when I do sit down, it's not quality coming from these fingertips.
But there is one saving grace on our tree, my floating, yellow orange, origami star from my CP Emily. When I'm frustrated at one more disaster from Descructo Man, I can look at that star and think, even if I am this falling apart, crap tree, above me is a star, and if I can stand a little taller, I can find a minuscule scrap of its brilliance, and those tiny moments when I can write, they're going to be worthwhile *stands of tippy toes* *wishes for a fireman's ladder* *settles for a stool*
