Last Saturday, some of the “Write Chicks” had a Christmas party. It was hosted by the mega-creative Write Chick, Katie O’Connor. Katie is the Queen of Christmas decorations!
For this get-together, we had a potluck lunch and a Secret Santa gift exchange.
“Write Chicks” is a group of writers who meet to provide motivation and accountability for each other, and to get “words on the page”. At the party, we tallied up our word counts for the year, and guess what? As a group, these Write Chicks wrote about 900,000 words.
I’m sorry to say that I didn’t contribute many words to that total—but I am definitely motivated for next year.
At the party, we also had two contests.
- Best Holiday Outfit, and
- Ugliest Sweater
Here are the sweaters and outfits.
Katie O’Connor writes contemporary romance, often steamy ones! Now, she’s also writing cozy mysteries. Find her here.
Shelley Kassian writes Romantasy, a combination of Fantasy + Romance. Find her here.
Brenda Sinclair writes historical western romance and contemporary romance. She has published over twenty novels. Find her here.
Katie O’Connor, Shelley Kassian and Brenda Sinclair are part of the Women of Stampede series. You can read about the project here.

And this is me. The Sweet Romance author. I’m still hobbling around with my cane, but next year, I get a brand new hip.
Thank you, Santa!
