    I love your Star Wars buddies! I have a ceramic BB-8 coin bank on my desk. I need to get an R2D2. 🙂

    I have the deepest admiration for the huge amount of work you do. I was clicking all over this post. I’m in for the advent calendar. Scrolling back through to go over the rest. Thanks for all the great info, Juneta! I really do have to figure out Goodreads. Maybe during the holiday lull …. what lull??
    Thanks for a great post!

    I do have a Harry Potter journal, but I rarely write anything in it for fear of despoiling it. I keep waiting for these fantastic thoughts that are journal-worthy. Sigh…

      I really like it. I have been faithful to it for about 3 years now but lately, I have not been keeping up with it as I did in past. I like it because it is a catch-all for me and suits any purpose I need it for.

And the blog hop….hopefully my creative brain will reboot from the NaNoWriMo attempt this year. I adore your writing buddies. I need to get some to hang out with me! 🙂

    Hi,
    It’s always a joy for me coming to your website. It is sooooo encouraging. I’ve been having troubles posting on post of the blogs in the IWSG because of my Safari explorer. So, I’ve switched to Google and it nice to be back to visit your blog.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

      She does one every year with a different theme. I got it through the Ninja Writers Club Esty shop. Its closed right because she just moved from one state to another, but should reopen. It is very clever. She made it out of book cover and use rings, index cards, and lament to create dry ease pages too. I love it. I have a bigger one too. 5×7. It is Monsters Inc. and a Footloose one. All made from books or vinyl record covers.

    The advent calendar is a wonderful idea.

    I guess if I posted a shot of my full desk, it would look cluttered. But it’s very organized clutter.

      I try to do it every year, but I missed last years.

      I need more organization, but mine is so cluttered mainly because it is small. It is the top of a nightstand.
