Do You Hear Jingle Bells?
If you're at my house, you probably do. Or possibly Frosty the Snowman or Joy to the World. Yes, I know it's only August, but inspiration is as vital to good writing as a good vocabulary. Fortunately for me, I love Christmas music. (I'm usually listening to it by now anyway and this gives me an excuse.) So although I'm still folding laundry, wiping noses, and washing dishes, all I have to do to get ready to work on "Aglow" is put on my Christmas playlist. Suddenly, I'm back in my characters' world, decorating the tree, baking gingerbread, and unwittingly standing under the mistletoe.
