While I’d love to shower my writing friends with gifts from the lists, alas, I don’t possess a magic wand or unlimited funds. I did, however, find a cool item, one that would a make a perfect present for a novelist or memoir writer. Check it out!
I love motivational sayings and have them on plaques hung on all four walls of my home office, but none I have is as fitting for a writer as this one. Talk about encouraging. I do wish it said “read” instead of “hear,” but since I hear characters in my head as both a reader and a writer, it works for me. 🙂
I found the plaque in a local store. It’s manufactured by Riverland Designs and is from a company called Gift Craft ~ http://www.giftcraft.com. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find an online supplier, but I’m offering one of the plaques in . . .
As my gift to you, I’m offering one of these little (2-1/2 x 4 inch) metal plaques as a prize. To enter the drawing, just leave a comment telling me which of the items on the lists above you’d most like or suggest others. The drawing ends at midnight Pacific time on December 4th.
I’ll post the winner’s name here as well as in a comment on December 5th. Be sure to leave your address during the comment process when prompted so I have a way to contact you.
Congratulations to the winner, LoRee Peery.
Offer void where prohibited. Odds of winning vary based upon number of entries.
