Sorry for the radio silence, kids! Mama’s been on vacation, and (no offense) that meant vacation from you all as well. But more on that later. 😉

For now, check out this poem by The Naga. It moved me, and I’m guessing it will resonate with some of you also.

The Naga

More than ever, the world needs us, the world needs us now, us artists, be a writer, a painter, a poet, a dancer, a storyteller, a designer, build us the worlds that you have imagined, give life to our madness, show the world that it is not only about making money and children, that there are other ways to live life, to accomplish our goals, give meaning to our existence, because we artists never only live once, we live for every single day, we create, we make, we paint and write our souls and emotions into our creations, more than ever, in this age of war and craze, we need you, the world needs you, to create, to bring meaning and dimension to our reality.

Welcome to part two of the most excellent nuggets of joy you can stuff into the stockings of fellow writers and readers. (If you missed Part 1, check it out!)

 

Ink and Graphite

Writers write. It’s what we do. And a couple of the most relied-upon tools for said writing are pens and pencils. Enjoy.

And a wonderfully fun little piece of poo to keep those pencils sharp:

Mark-My-Placers

funny meme about books

Yes, I’m one of those awful people who dog-ear my books.

If you abhor creasing those lovely pages, these bookmarks will surely help get the job done.

And you might remember these from a recent giveaway I hosted:

Caffeine Dispensers

There’s a stereotype about writers that we all would be happier with a permanent IV of coffee. Personally, I can’t stand the crap. But I do love some hot chocolate…and these mugs look like they’d be perfect for some cocoa topped with marshmallows.

And a fun and not exactly safe for work mug from one of my favorite sources of info about dark fiction, Dirge Magazine:

Pocket Books (I don’t mean purses…)

Okay, so I went a little nutty with this category. But you know how much I freaking love books

And because I love David Bowie:

To wrap up this fun two-part holiday series, I’ll let Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan take the mic:
