I finished and submitted the historical story I was working on. It's such a relief to have it done. It's called The Greatest Gift and is set in the early Victorian period. I'll post more about it once I hear back.
I don't usually listen to music when I write, but this story takes place at Christmas, so I often listened to this CD (usually before writing) to get in the right frame of mind.
I sang in choir during high school and college, so I love choral music. Two songs in particular have a haunting tone that worked beautifully with the story: "Gabriel's Message" and "Nativity Tale."
Today I'm going to savor the fact that this story is finished. Tomorrow I'll get to work on something else.
