I’m over at Victoria Adams’ blog today talking about my part in the Exquisite Quills Holiday Anthology. http://victoriaadams.blogspot.com/2013/11/rose-andersons-star-of-wonder-holiday.html .
I’m a story collector and always have been. The inspiration for Star of Wonder (my tale in the Anthology) comes from the stories that make up the fabric of rural America — those small slices of common history told by our national treasure — our seniors. The rest is a tribute to the Christmas story. As with all of my stories, Star of Wonder has its share of metaphor. It’s free too!
Years ago, my husband gave me a mostly empty album for collecting vintage holiday postcards. From now until January, I’ll put a card on for you to enjoy.
If you’re stopping here for the first time, I have some interesting links to follow and previous posts of all sorts here. With an undeniably healthy sense of wonder, my interests are wide and varied. I guarantee you’ll find interesting tidbits from A to Z. You’ll even find the A to Z Challenge!
