Less than a week till Christmas. Are you ready?

Just an FYI: There are going to be some changes at BeKindRewrite in 2014!

To keep things simple, Inspiration Monday will be postponed for the week of Christmas (which gives you an extra week for the prompts from the 16th!).

I’ll give another alert about this before then. In the meantime, here’s the go-to article for whenever you’re feeling uninspired.
