When you reach a certain age, your seasonal gift list changes. Instead of the laundry list of big and small items (something electronic and techie, something warm and fuzzy), you might simply wish for peace and quiet, good health for your growing kids and aging parents, and maybe something chocolate.
I hear ya. Me, too.
However, now that my own kids are old enough to work and drive, they've actually asked me (me, Mom me) for a list of what I want. Whwhwhat? Me? Hmm. The trick is the list can't be too long nor the items too expensive.
Here is one writer's wish list of nine musts and wants (with links for you):
First, the essentials:
1. "Revival" by Stephen King. I typically buy myself the man's newest release anyway.
2. Some new notebooks. Moleskin is cool and hip, but I prefer old school with lines.
3. A set of good pens.
4. New Age or Classical music CD. This one is easy for the kids because they can go to a re-use music shop and pick up some packaged music for cheap. (No downloads.) I'm getting bored of my usual writing background music.
5. The latest copy of Writer's Digest Magazine.
Now for some fun stuff:
6. Good friendly chocolate.
7. Good friendly coffee.
8. Warm toes.
9. Stylish hat to keep warm on those inspirational walks to break writer's block.
