One of my favorite things of the Holiday Season is to create my own Christmas Wish List for Writers. It gives me a chance to browse glamorous stores I wouldn’t normally shop, to dream big, and to have some adult fun. This list is for the penny pincher who needs a good reason to spend those pennies. So here’s my top ten Fab Glam Christmas Wish List for Women Writers like me. And if you are privy to these kinds of dollars then sure I will take the gift.

She developed the story-telling technique of the “interior monologue”, which she used most consistently in her novel “The Waves”, which appeared in 1931. Virginia Woolf shaped this avant-garde technique with an expressly feminine subjectivity and autobiographical elements to create milestones in feminist literature such as “Orlando” or “Mrs Dalloway.
