My Favorite Christmas.......by Dennis Moore, Storyteller
While for me, every childhood Christmas had been
and still is memorable, the one that stands out the most in my mind when asked
to recall a favorite is the year Santa gave this little ten year old a desk.
Now, to be sure, my mom intoned that the desk was more than likely a reminder
that I now had no excuse for completing my homework, she knew in her heart that
it was my command center for penning (back then the internet was unheard of,
and I used a typewriter, or pen and paper – PCs were not here yet either) the
Greatest American Novel.
It was a joy to see the two most favorite events of mine coalesce: Christmas
and writing. Here was a physical space that I could call my own, a place
private to me, where I could escape reality and enter the worlds I created. I
couldn't be happier. From that desk came many of the story concepts that are
even now, three decades later, coming to fruition and finding their place in
Dennis's latest book is "Scattered to the Four Winds, The Adventures of Pullman Brown"
