Writing on Wednesday: With Apologies to Clement Clarke Moore or ???
(Wednesday’s post is going up today, on Christmas Eve, so I can spend Christmas with my family.)
Thanks to my friend, Herman King, for sharing this hilarious card with me and all our writing buddies in the Yoknapatawpha Writing Group.
Whether or not Clement Clark Moore or Henry Livingston wrote the original, I’m sure the author wouldn’t mind our having a laugh at his expense . . . all in the spirit of Christmas, of course. My favorite edit is the line about the tiny eight reindeer and the editor’s concern about an “animal rights’ problem.” Anyway, I hope all my friends who are writing or revising will enjoy this as much as I did.
And to all a good nite!
