Dear Santa,

16 Dec

This week on Story Dam we had our choice of prompts. One was a really cool version of Mad Libs called Dam Libs, the other was to write a letter for Santa. My boys and I had a blast playing the Dam Libs, but after staring at that crazy paragraph for four days, the only thing I came up with was the realization that if I didn’t want to miss the deadline, I’d better stick with the letter to Santa!

The following letter is from Olivia Hanson, a character in one of my dusty little WIP’s. She’s all grown up in the story, but I always wondered what she had been like as a child. I looked through some old boxes in her trailer, and this is what I found.

    Boy, for someone who didn’t want to write the letter, she sure had a lot to say! So funny!

      LOL Olivia tends to get a little long-winded when she’s on a rant. πŸ™‚

    Olivia is definitely my kind of gal…. I don’t like big dogs either, for the same reason πŸ˜‰

    Love this!!! I know I’d enjoy getting to know the grown up Olivia if she was this spunky in 6th grade!!

      She’s definitely still spunky, only now with a stronger bite of bitter disillusionment. LOL I’m debating unveiling her and her friends for the character link-up, but I haven’t decided yet. Might stick with my trusty Allman Falls peeps. decisions, decisions.
