If you celebrate Christmas, what are your favorite Christmas stories? And if you celebrate another holiday, what fictional works capture it best for you?
Have you ever written Christmas or another major holiday into your own stories? I'm including Halloween and Thanksgiving in In Time, which is in the final stages of revision (finally!). And my planning for the last book of The Legacy Series includes Christmas and perhaps another holiday. I'm fining the holidays packed with activities that pull me away from writing, and yet nonetheless inspiring. Often a hymn, decorative display, or a child's trusting request give me pause as I find myself building a story around the experience. As often as the holidays pull me away from writing, they draw me back to it again with inspiration.
