Advent Calendar – Day 23

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Day 23 – Word Shamble

Lynn Love is a wordsmith hors pair.  Honestly, this woman weaves a tale like no other.  When participating in Friday Fictioneers or What Pegman Saw, I marvel at how she can describe a situation or scene or person in 100-150 words and leave me with the images swirling around my brain.  And she doesn’t do it with an overload of adjectives placed willy-nilly, either.  Each one enhances the story just right.

Her specialty is horror or stories of foreboding and her creepy is often done in a sneaky fashion.  You think all is going well and then you pick up on the little Easter eggs she has subtly hidden within her text.  So good!

I know Lynn sends her work out regularly and eventually a publisher is gonna wake up to her talent and publish it where I shall be first in line to purchase it!

  1. No need to visit this one. I met Lynn at the same time as I met you. And since that far off April day, Lynn and I have engendered long and interesting threads. Her posts are always a shiversome delight to read. 🙂

  2. Dear Dale,

    You definitely couldn’t do this advent calendar without Lynn Love. OMG, what a wordsmith. I hope to one day have an autographed copy of her first novel. When it comes to descriptions no one equals her. I miss her terribly (and her magnificent comments) in Friday Fictioneers. (Are you reading this, Lynn?)
    Wonderful post, my friend.

    Shalom and hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      No way could I exclude this wordsmith extraordinaire. So glad you feel as I do and no, no one describes a scene quite like her.
      She’ll be back… Right, Lynn?
      Thank you. So glad you like.

      Lotsa love,

    • My pleasure, John. As a writer, (who also loves a certain writer in PA), you will truly appreciate this particular writer as well… She does know how to turn a phrase!

  3. I have enjoyed Lynn Love’s writing very much since joining FF back in February. Dale, thank you for your brilliantly inventive advent calendar. It’s highlighted and linked relative newcomers like me to established favourites and lovely interesting new people. Massive well done!

  4. So sorry I missed this when it first aired – work kept me away from WP for several days. Thank you Dale. I’m more grateful than I can tell you for your ongoing support and encouragement, your lovely comments, your continued reading of my snippet stories. I’m touched beyond words by being included in your roll call of such wonderfully talented, good people. Best blogging Christmas present ever x

  5. Yay, Lynn is wonderful! I think I missed a couple of these while I was on holiday with my family (for some reason neither my laptop or phone would let me sign into WordPress — ack, something to fix later, when I have more time). Just dropping in for a quick howdy before I dive into the two weeks’ worth of work I need to get done in the next four days. Happy belated Christmas, Dale!
