Hello, everyone. I will return next month with a Christmas themed post for you guys, but this month another blogger will be featured on my blog. Enjoy her post, and Happy Thanksgiving!
It’s that time of year again. The holidays are just around the corner, and the fall season with its invigorating weather is here. I love fall, and the cool air that blows leaves off trees and causes the scenery to change color. Fall colors such as red, orange, and yellow are such inspiring colors. As a person watches leaves change colors, one thinks that nature is painting a picture of its own. For me, being an author during this time of year is most inspiring and uplifting. Summer is so hot and humid that sometimes I don’t always feel as inspired to write as I do when beautiful fall days arrive. When fall arrives, the holidays do as well. The fall season precedes such holidays as Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Writing can be exciting during this time of year, because people love the holidays. They love everything that comes with the holidays. Whether it’s Halloween with its trick or treating, Thanksgiving with its family gatherings, or Christmas with its decorations and music, all the holiday cheer can inspire writers. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. I love to walk around my neighborhood and admire my neighbors’ Christmas decorations. One of my favorite things about my fall walks is watching Christmas trees glow through my neighbors’ windows. I love observing shining lights, and decorations on people’s lawns. To describe the joy and feelings it gives me is impossible. Yet, one feeling that gives me every year is one of enchantment. Christmas not only brings enchantment to every day ordinary people, but writers as well. Besides the enchanting feelings that Christmas gives to writers, Christmastime may very well be the one time a year that writers can profit from their writings financially. People love Christmas and Christmas stories; thus Christmas stories are the kind of stories that writers profit most from at Christmastime. Christmas novels, short stories, and or poems are a delight for readers to read at Christmastime. For Christmas lovers, just reading about Christmas trees and people living happily ever after at Christmastime is something to look forward to when they purchase Christmas books. As an author writing at Christmastime is satisfying. For a writer, the thought of making money during this time is always nice, but it’s even better when they know that they wrote something that inspires others. Writing at Christmastime makes Christmas more special for writers because of this. Writing at that special time of year (Christmastime) is something I happily recommend to any writer. It’s not only the potential earnings that a writer can make at Christmastime that brings joy and cheer to them. Writing at Christmastime is also a great opportunity for authors to write something that will stay with their readers and touch their hearts and lives long after Christmas is over.
