If you’re a writer, especially if you write fantasy of any kind, Christmas season is a wonderful time of the year.
1. Magic is in the air: there’s something about this particular holiday (out of all holidays) that no matter where you go, you can sense magic in everything. And for the creative souls, the magical feel tends to be extra strong.
2. You’re already a kid-at-heart: with holiday cartoons and movies and music galore, and don’t forget all the yummy sweets that accompany Christmas…how can you not feel like a kid again?
3. Christmas tends to re-awaken the muse: I can only attest this to be true for me. I love the idea of a man and his elves and reindeer residing in a magical place where we can’t see…as a child I envisioned this place as a beautiful haven in a world that was too focused on “reality.”
What about you? What does Christmas means to you as a writer?
